Buffalo babies born at two Kaleida Health hospitals will again be welcomed to the world with a message from the Sabres.
The Sabres announced Wednesday they will provide all newborns at Women and Children's Hospital and Millard Fillmore Suburban with a "Future No. 1 Draft Pick" Halo SleepSack Swaddle and a signed letter from team owner Terry Pegula.

Sabres President Ted Black and Kaleida President and CEO Jody L. Lomeo will relaunch the program with the area's first babies at 10:30 a.m. Thursday in Women and Children's Hospital.
"It’s very special for our organization to be a part of such an important and intimate moment for the families of these newborns,” said Black. “The Sabres share a great bond with this community, and it’s our hope that this program helps to strengthen that bond and usher in a new generation of Sabres fans.
"We’re always proud to partner with Kaleida Health, especially to help promote a critical issue like infant sleep safety.”
The Halo SleepSack Swaddle replaces loose blankets, and all parents will receive a safety information packet with their Pegula certificate. The two Kaleida hospitals deliver 5,000 babies annually.
