What Does A Baby Mean In My Dreams

Baby Dreams

Adorable, cuddly and full of curiosity, babies are amazing to say the least. They are the center of attention, they light up our hearts and brighten a room with a smile, not to mention melting your heart when they laugh.

When a baby emerges in your dream it’s considered a very powerful omen relating to good news, future success and advancement. However negative associations with babies often mirror personal upsets, losses and development issues.

Every month google averages approximately 1 million searches to find the meaning when they dream of a baby. Considering being one of the most sought out dream searches one will often wonder what perspectives are new on the horizon.

Common Baby Dreams:

Before we jump the gun we must understand how our dreams communicate with us. The theme will provide you with clues surrounding the baby, people around you, locations and what is taking place with the baby. Thinking in metaphors helps narrow down the meaning of the dream.

Fun Fact:

Did you know the size of a newborn baby stomach is the size of a walnut.

Baby Dreams: A Personal Transformation

Babies commonly appear in dreams when someone is going through a personal transformation in their lives. A sign of a new growth phase starting in your life, a reminder that this rejuvenation can be either emotional, phyical or spiritual advancement.

Similar to when a butterfly appears in your dreams, a baby shows you the end stages of the metamorphosis process. A symbol that new life has now sprung in your life and lots of new responsibility.

Your dream will provide you with clues that surround the baby to help narrow down were the transformation is occurring. Locations and the people around you are often major hints were to direct your attention.

  • Relationships
  • Career
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual

Baby Dreams: Healing The Inner Child

The term “inner child” in analytical psychology can be refereed to the child that hides every grown adult. This child is often unconscious that reflects the child who we once were. Alternatively this little child could have been trapped in the past and is now being nurtured.

Negative past experiences such as  painful memories, emotional upsets, or even as simple as your doll being taken away; may in fact stunt the growth of this child.

Your dream might be indicating the baby is the part of you that is now free and will get the love and nourishment it needs.

Fun Fact:

Babies go through around 3360 nappies in the first year.

Baby Dreams: The Biological Clock

Surely all women must have a maternal instinct kick in or the whole human race would dissolve. The unconscious sound of the ominous ticking “biological clock” when they reach their 30’s, might be dreaming of babies more often.

Dreams often incorporate your repressed feelings or fears in a metaphoric manner. Babies might pop up relating to your maternal drive being magnified due to societal or family pressure.

You will need to ask if this dream could be a wish fulfillment or something you fear missing out on.

Baby Dreams: You Need To Grow Up

Imagine we had a tool that would assess both our phyical and emotional age, their would be a lot of hiding. The baby might appear to be a manifestation of all your immature behaviors.

The underdeveloped child screams for your attention wanting to become an adult. Just because you have reached adulthood doesn’t necessarily mean your have mastered the core elements of adult emotional functioning.

Alternatively your dream could be hinting at areas in your life that you are unconscious of and need improvement.

  • Emotional escalations
  • Blaming and lies
  • Center of attention
  • Impulsiveness and anger out burst
  • Cry baby, a need to get what it wants or else.
  • Narcissism

Fun Fact:

Newborns are amazing swimmers. They have natural aquatic instincts when in water.

Baby Dreams: How To Analyze

It would be trivial to clump all baby dreams into one translation as many do online. This is a very powerful symbol that often appears to be either unconscious to the dreamer, or possibly something develops in the near future.

What makes such an enigmatic symbol is it changes based of gender, age and unconscious events in your life. An adult male would interpret this dream differently then a teenager in high school, or a grandmother.

I had a dream last night that my bf and I were walking through a store picking out baby items for a baby we didn’t have. I want a baby so badly but we’re not on the same page. I’m hoping this means that the relationship is evolving and eventually we will be on the same page.

I dreamed a baby was floating in water and I was having a conversation with someone while fixated on this baby for fear it would drown.

I had a dream I had quadruplets, all 4 being girls, and a son. My boyfriend is there and we have a cute house and it was like just regular life. We put them to nap and my son played video games in the living room. The only weird thing about it was none of the kids had names. The son was about 7 years old and didnt have a name and all of the girls were about 1 years old and didnt have names. It was very odd, they all loved the fact they didnt have names too.

I had my son 3 months early, he was born 5 days after my birthday. He only lived for 3 days. Yes it was hard and it hurt. He passed away right in my arms while being baptized. Shortly after I was able to go home I started having these dreams of rebirthing him, but the only difference was is he was healthy and lived longer than 3 days. I had my Baby back again, but once I woke up and looked around my baby was no longer there. I’ve had this same dream quite a bit. still to this… Read more »

I just dreamt of having a baby but I didn’t physically have her and my husband was coming home with her cause we just got married too (mind you we’ve been married for almost 5 years now) again I don’t remember seeing us getting married in my dream not having a baby. When he got home it was my ex husband but it was suppose to be my husband? Very weird.

Good to know. My husband has been away in a alcohol rehab and will be home soon. He will be gone for a total of 30 days. I wonder if this has anything to do with my dream. I’ve been worried about how well he will do when he returns back home.

I don’t even know how to explain it really. My memory knew in this dream that a baby, my sister’s baby, had been laid down on the floor in my room days ago. So we have been walking over an infant for days. The whole family like it was a pile of laundry or something. Well I look down and finally become aware of the baby and he is dying obviously because of lack of everything-food, water, love!! So I grab him and take him into the bathroom and start dropping water on his lips. It ended with me continuing… Read more »

I had a dream this morning. I think I was in a strange house in a closet of sort. I was hiding with someone’s baby, I think that person wanted me to protect the baby. She didn’t cry, and she just fell asleep beside me as I was laying down as well trying to be quiet. That’s all I remember. I’m not sure what it means, but I do believe it’s a good omen.
