Dreaming Of Baby Dying

When babies emerge in your dreams they can be considered very symbolic containing a hidden message about yourself. Unfortunately dreaming of a dead baby reflects endings, failing and losses in ones life.

These common dreams tend to shake us up for the rest of the day leaving us with an unsettled feeling in our stomach. Despite its graphic or disturbing nature, once you identify what the dead baby represents in your dream it will serve as a benefit to you. Though you will need to bring a metaphoric shovel because we are about to do some digging.

Dying Baby Dream Meaning

Dreams have an incredibility ability to bring things to our attention we are not consciously aware of in our walking life. This dream in particular has purposely selected the image of a dead baby to relate something that is unconscious to you.

The Benefits Of Death In Dreams

So what exactly could that be? Since the baby develops inside the womb this would mirror something that was developing (within) for some time. By reflecting on failed opportunities, ideas, plans, or relationships in your life might help identify this problem. Alternatively, the image of the dead baby in your dream might relate to a emotional and psychological trauma caused from past experiences – the child in you is unable to grow and mature properly.

Common Dead Baby Dreams

  • Dead baby in a coffin.
  • I’m pregnant and dreaming of my baby dying.
  • My dead mother having a baby.
  • Dead baby coming back to life.
  • Baby dying in my arms.
  • Dreaming dead twin babies.

Pregnant & Dreaming Of Dead Baby

As horrifying as these dreams may be they are very common relating to fears of the worst happening (pregnant dreams). These feelings or thoughts of worry might not be expressed in your life and it is coming out in your dream.

Dead Baby Dreams: The Inner Child

In popular psychology and analytical psychology the term inner child refers to the invisible child in every adult. Essentially this child becomes lost or frozen in time due to his or her past childhood traumatic experiences. Could you be struggling with upsetting emotions, memories, and anxiety that won’t go away?

The fact is that the majority of so-called adults are not truly adults at all. They just got old. Anybody can do that. Though this child still remains trapped in the mind of the adult and that will cause a tantrum if neglected long enough. Essentially the child is crying out for your attention wanting you to recuse them for you to live a more full filled life.

Inner Child Dying Signs

  • Refusal to become an adult.
  • Constant dependence on others, need to be babied.
  • Self criticism myself for being inadequate.
  • I feel inadequate as a man or woman.

 Dead Babies Coming Back To Life Dream

To dream of a baby coming back to life is a very positive omen connecting you to a rebirth or sudden change in your life. This can be related to events, relationships, plans,  or a reconnection with your inner child. The location and events that lead to the baby coming back to life provide you with clues.

Are You Experiencing Unusual Baby Dreams?

Dead Twin Babies Dream

Dreaming about dead twin babies could be a metaphoric meaning relating to an ending in two’s, two things, a set, multiple in your life. The image of the dying twins could draw your attention to the unconscious masculine and feminine energy.

Dreams of a dead baby in a toilet focus on failed and stagnated issues. Toilets are synonymous with ‘letting go’ of what has been held inside.

I just woke up from a dream where shortly after my ex-boyfriend (in the dream he was my current boyfriend) broke up with me for someone else (which didn’t happen in our real timeline.) Then, I walk downstairs in my parents’ house and I see my mom sitting in the dining room cradling the baby she just had given birth to maybe a day ago in the dream. It was dead and appeared lifeless and blue. She was sobbing about her baby that passed. I remember telling her I was “so, so sorry.” Definitely spooked. :/

My dog, Ali, had just passed away yesterday. My dream was about a gathering of friends and I had left my baby in the lounge with everyone else while I was talking to a friend out the back door while she had a smoke. In this dream, my dog Ali was alive and well (she was actually very ill and in pain why she had to get put down) and we believed it was because our other dog, Indie had passed away instead and rejuvenated Ali’s life. Anyways that was a joy to see and as I look over to… Read more »

I had a deeply unsettling dream involving the death of an infant last night. It involved a doctor in a dimly lit delivery delivery room, and he dropped the baby and upon impact it exploded. I was restless the rest of the night, and have never a had a dream like this in my entire life. I am male and have never had such a dream. In the dream there was audio of me on the phone telling my mother “the baby died”. There were also flashes of a news report talking about the death.

I just woke up from dream where my son (2) was playing with me and someone, who is think was supposed to be my husband but I am not sure who’s face I saw, outside of our house on the front lawn. He might be too old to be considered a true baby but he is still my baby to me. Anyways, my son had to go to the washroom by himself for some reason and he also had to follow a path near a cliff above our house to reach the washrooms. I let him go alone and I… Read more »

I’ve never had a baby before. But in this dream I fall pregnant and I’m sooooo excited, everyone around me is so happy. I have twins, the birth is difficult but goes smoothish. The babies are big babies for their age. I am so happy calling everyone and telling them and so excited for the future. I go into my research job at the hospital a few days after giving birth to the babies. I’m so tired I haven’t slept for 3 days. On my lunch break I go outside and all of outside is a water park and some… Read more »

I’ve been in a nomans land for a while. I had a lifelong dream of being a Dr and lately I’ve been feeling like it isn’t going to happen/isn’t right for me. I’m no sure where my career is going. Also I’ve been questioning whether to stay in my relationship and keep my two cats or give them to my parents for a bit to travel and be single. Do you think this is related?

I just had a dream last night, someone I can’t make out in real life seemed close to me in my dream, a young girl and she came with a baby. The setting seemed like my grandma’s house and my sisters were present. I asked to hold the baby and she let me, she told me that the baby had some problems and I should be careful but it only starts when I kiss the baby on the head. My curiosity led me to kiss the baby and the baby fell from my arms and started shaking/banging it’s head on… Read more »

I dreamt that I ran into an ex-flame whom I apparently had a daughter with, and when I bumped into him, I apparently had left the daughter with him shortly after giving birth. However, the baby I saw was a dead shrivelled up corpse (rather gory), and apparently the baby died in her sleep at 7 months old while holding onto her father’s finger.

What could it possibly mean?

I just had a dream/nightmare in which I insisted on holding my nephew (1 yr old) as my family left a place. I was wearing heels and trying to walk down very rough stone steps. I was holding him at my center, facing out. I suddenly stumbled and he flew out of my arms, head first into a cardboard box in a low level/pit. He was dead. I ran down the rest of the steps and faced my family in horror. My sister-in-law looked in the box. I woke up just as she was about to scream. What might that… Read more »

Thank you , it’s hard to explain , I didn’t see his face, however, I felt I was arguing with second husband, not the father of my son
Could I have unresolved emotions between the two?
The father of my son I do not have a relationship with, our marriage was not a good one, he did not support or comfort me in any manner,,however I have a good relationship with my second husband who remains a good friend
We have a child together and now a granddaughter, we get along well
