Have you ever had a dream where a random or maybe not so random baby appears? Whether you have children or not, babies can appear in your dreams from time to time. And the appearance of a baby in your dreams can prove to be stressful not only in the dream but perhaps even longer after you wake up. Why did this baby appear in your dreams? Who is the baby? Where did it come from? And why is a baby showing up in the most random of places within your dream?
Not to worry, having the so called “baby dream” is common and comparable in frequency to its counterpart…the pregnancy dream. But having a baby pop up randomly in your dreams can definitely prove to be a bit unnerving since it can mean quite a lot of different things. On the positive side, a baby in your dreams can represent innocence or purity. And on the more negative side, it can signify emotional regression, fear, and anxiety. So, how can you figure out what exactly a baby in your dream is representing? Let’s take a look at the different possibilities that will hopefully help you decipher that baby dream and put your mind at ease.
Seeing a Baby:
It’s not uncommon to see a baby in your dream. And it can seem to happen at the most random times in the dream…almost like the baby just pops up out of nowhere. Usually when a baby just randomly appears within your dream, it can signify warmth, innocence, and new beginnings. It could also mean that it would be beneficial for you to get back in touch with that innocent side of yourself…to slow things down and take care of yourself.
Seeing a Crying Baby:
If you experience a crying baby in your dream, it could mean a few different things from seeing just a random, non-crying baby popping up. A crying baby symbolizes the need to be nurtured and paid attention to. It could also be your subconscious telling you that you have unfulfilled goals and potentials that you may be ignoring, and so your mind is crying out to you to get you to pay attention much like a crying baby does.
Holding a Baby:
When the baby appeared in your dream, were you the one holding it? If so, holding a baby in your dream could signify that you’re reminiscing about a time when you felt needed and were depended upon, just like a baby depends on someone to hold them and give them comfort. Holding a baby in a dream could mean that there was a time when you were caring for perhaps and actual child or someone else dear to you and it made you feel good, signifying that you might have a desire to feel that way once again in the present.
Finding a Baby:
While finding a baby in your dream may feel like a complicated issue while your dreaming, it’s meaning is actually a bit less complicated. If you happen upon a baby…maybe find one abandoned on the steps of a church…in your dream, it means that you’re ready to accept newly found talents and potential. These things need to be nursed and cared for so they can grow into successful talents and potential…just like a baby needs to be nursed and cared for.
Forgetting a Baby:
If you’ve ever had that dream where you feel like you’re forgetting something, but just quite figure out what it is…only to figure out you forgot your baby, don’t worry, it doesn’t mean you forgot something in real life…at least not physically. Dreaming about forgetting a baby can mean that there may be something in your life that you’ve placed aside and you are on the verge of rediscovering it. Then there’s also dreaming that you forgot you had a baby. This can signify that you’re trying to hide vulnerabilities and weaknesses so you can forget about them.
Seeing a baby in your dreams can mean a lot of different things. So, the next time one appears, don’t forget to pay attention to the details so you can figure out what that unexpected visitor paying your dreams a visit could mean.
