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.
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.

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.
