About the logo

Our logo represents the importance of parental support - providing a secure base for infants.

The 'floating' baby is within and part of the interactional space. The shadowing symbolises the representations, that we all have, which drive our behaviours.

The surrounding circle is the supporting community that scaffolds the family so they can move forward freely, hence the circle is broken to allow for relationships to grow and flourish.

Naturally, that looks like a new moon. Sleep struggles are often shadowed by misunderstandings and misinformation.
