Babies in dreams can mean a variety of things.
They can refer to our own inner child, the part of us that remains innocent, spontaneous, playful and trusting. These kind of baby dreams ask us to look to where in our life we need nurturing. Do you need to take better care of yourself, or maybe you have judged your self harshly and need to be a bit kinder and gentler to your self.
They can mean a new project in your life, something that you create and nurture as “your baby.” The age of the baby can sometimes indicate when this project started or was “conceived.”
If you lose or forget the baby in your dream, you might feel a terrible sense of sadness or guilt. Look for where in your life you feel you have lost something precious. This might be a new loss, like loss of a job, giving up something personally valuable to you in order to achieve another goal, or help someone you care about. It might also be an old loss, remembrance from a pain in your past that is unresolved, when the innocent, trusting part of you was hurt or let down. Baby dreams ask us to address these issues, so we can feel trusting and happy again.
And while it is not the most common reason for people to dream of babies, some women do realise they are pregnant by dreaming of their baby. This is because the subconscious mind often knows before the conscious mind what is going on in the body, and will send us messages to let us know!
The important thing to remember, is that even if you dream of your own children, or children you know, these are usually symbols your mind is using to express an idea to you. There is no need to feel anxious or guilty over your parenting skills, but you might want to look at what other causes for anxiety there are in your life, and remember it is just as important to care for and nurture your self as it is to care for your baby.
