Meaning of Dreams with Babies

Antonia R.Antonia R.

Seeing a baby in a dream essentially speaks of innocence and a new beginning. But to be interpreted correctly, the situation in which you dream of the baby is also of significance.

Babies can also symbolize your own behavior. If you dream that the baby is frightened of something, it is highly likely that a concrete circumstance makes you vulnerable and helpless in real life.

If the baby smiles or is content, it is thought that something will bring you joy. But since it appears as a baby in your dream, it's highly possible for you to try to avoid it in reality.

A baby can also symbolize hidden qualities of your character. For example, if you dream that you've lost your baby, it's highly probable for you to be concealing your weaknesses in real life, even from those closest to you.

It may also mean that you feel completely ignored, left out and lonely in real life. The dream may be driving you to expand your interests and hobbies.

If you dream that you're headed to the hospital to give birth it means that you're way too obsessed and dependent on the problems in your daily life. You may also be trying to avoid a certain responsibility.

But if a pregnant woman dreams of her upcoming birth, it signifies only that she's excited about the arrival of her child.

Dreams where you are holding and caring for babies indicate that subconsciously you want to go back to your childhood, where everyone cared for you.


If the baby in the dream is evil, it means that you're afraid of something new your life - a job, relationship or project.

Crying babies can be interpreted several ways. On the one hand they may symbolize your immature behavior in real life. On the other, they show that you're being ignored, or may even be evidence of your fears about your own children.

Dreams of babies also symbolize your dependency on other people and circumstances. You may be feeling a serious lack of something in reality and have the strong need to satisfy it.

If you have a dream of a dead baby, it means that you've quit a habit or something else that was once a part of your past. If the baby is dancing, walking or doing some other similar activity, it is a sign that you're taking small steps toward your big goal.
