Baby / Babies dream meanings


Child-like self; Rebirth or revival; Trust and reliance.


What new is born inside me? Or was it just a rebirth? What is it that I trust? Am I confident enough?

In general:

Safety and protection: In all cases (girl or boy) dreaming of baby is the symbol of the unconscious longing for security. There is nothing new – as we always are pursuing any kind of guarantees, so this part of our waking life comes in dreams with face of birth.
Work and success: To carry a baby (male or female) in dream symbolizes work (or many of them) and not easy one, but hard. Don’t worry now, just keep reading. Dreaming that you are carrying a baby (or someone else, it’s doesn’t change anything) indicates current tough times and shows a little of future, where you will need to carry your burden for a while and only after many troubles with much efforts (hard work) you will be able to reach your ambitious goals, but only after much efforts. So make sure you have all your strengths and don’t let your success go away. Do it and throw away all worries, because at the end you’ll be the winner and you’ll be awarded.
Harder and better: Breastfeed (syn. suckle, nurse) – to feed a baby with milk from the breast or to see in dream this process (someone else is feeding a baby), symbolizes same as carriage of baby (look up into part “Work and success”) exept one thing – you must be more responsible and perform your duty even harder and yet then, when you think it is unbearable or impossible to do or to finish. Just don’t quit, but finish what you have started and be a winner. “Try a little harder to be a little better.” as Gordon B. Hinckley once said.
Old and new: Beautiful babies – friendship might end (big chances), renew or to start (rare scenario). But this dream’s condition is tricky one. There is ONLY a small possibility that you will encounter some changes related with your friends. But be aware that dreaming of handsome, lovely or pretty babies (must be more than one), announces potential loss in social life – the end in friendship or sometimes renewal of it, but keep in mind, that it shows also an oppurtunity to start a new one. Maybe you are in exactly this situation right now? Have you lost your friend/s or state of trust and support? Perhaps dream is a image of current changes of faith. Please, share your experience in comments.
Unexpected irregular changes: To dream ugly (nasty, unsightly, unpleasant) babies points to minor irregularities in your own personality. If you see baby (babies) which is causing discomfort, unhappiness, then you should look deeper inside yourself and try to track down what has changed or happening right now with your own character. Maybe there is some anomalies and need to be fixed or re-evaluated and accepted as it is.
Capacity of recall: Dreaming of dead baby or babies can sometimes suggest a bad memory (short and long term) . Maybe you are experiencing decrease in ability to remember? If you have problem with keeping things in mind, then you should concentrate and focus your attention more. Furthermore, think all over and see what have you forgot. Is there anything? Dreaming of defunct, deceased or lifeless symbols may show temporary problems not only with ability to use short term memory, but also to remember places, things, or persons. Perhaps you want to unlearn some part of your past? Is there a reason for that? Then this might be a cause why you have dreaming about babies which are lacking of vitality.


On psychological level the baby can be expressed in a dream as a real desire to have children. In most cases possibility of this relation, when our direct conscious needs populate realm of subliminal world, is very big. Ask yourself, does this dream have connection with a pregnancy or birth you always wanted. Or maybe you’re expecting the baby already? If vision of dream isn’t exact mirror of  conscious desires or current pregnancy, then it symbolizes the childishness and immaturity of the dreamer. This means that certain traits of the dreaming person is not evolved or only insufficiently developed, but in this symbolism of dream is also telling that there is a want for completeness. Since this condition is already showing up in dream, means that this was long enough cherished and maintained, so next step in this scenario will be reaching goals and filling the gap. The baby in a dream may also represent the beginning of something fresh and completely new.

  1. I dreamt i was on a train with a baby on my lap, i was showing her the train out the window at how long it was. I could hear the train whistle blowing. It was going fast. Then suddenly the train came apart and i could see that it wasn’t on tracks, the train cars in front sped up while we were stopping due to not being connected. The cars in front hit gravel and i held my hands over the baby’s eyes so she wouldn’t get stones in her eyes.
    I was told that was our stop. So i got out with the baby at what looked like in the middle of nowhere, yet another train was coming. I remember thinking “why did the train just stop us here?”. Then i woke up.

Ive also always wanted a bby with my bf of 5 years but weve tried and failed i also had an abortion due to health issues that were going to lead to the death of my bby this was before my current boyfriend does anyone know what this means

  6. I had my baby boy sleeping in my arms. He was clean and dry. I was sitting on a couch holding him, in a huge house that I never been in.. When my baby moves to change position, I realize it wasn’t my baby, instead a cute black baby with few braids….she was so beautiful. I thought about my baby boy ( he is white): what happened? who switched them? Where is my boy? I hold this sweet baby and take her with me to find out where he is. She wouldn’t wake up. I see a window upstairs, a lit bedroom, far up and away from me, and i could see my boy sleeping. I could also see my cousin around the bed so I knew my boy was safe. I didn’t know what i was gonna do with the two babies.

  7. I had a miscarriage last month but last night I had a dream that felt so real… I was walking outside and it was so sunny and beautiful and I was holding a baby in my arms and I was so happy and kept saying I finally have my baby…what could this mean?

  8. I had a dream last night. The dream was about me being with my boyfriend in his huge big house. I saw his baby boy also in it. I seem to have had a conversation with his wife briefly. But all seemed to be fine. I was mostly with him and the baby boy.

  9. In my dream, four men were carrying a new born baby each and as I passed by them, each was giving me the babies which I collected.I remember seeing a beautiful boy I don’t recognize the sex of the other children but they are all beautiful babies. Please what does this mean

  10. Hi, my dream was about my unborn twins. Everyone in the world new i was going to give birth very soon. Me and my husband was running down the street and people was trying to kill me because of the babies were going to be born. My husband and I had guns and were shooting at the people that were trying to kill me. My husband held my hand all the way. Neighbors were risking their lives to save us. A helicopter scooped me and my husband up out of the crossfire. I give birth to one boy and one girl but then i see light a bright light. Everything became calm and peaceful in the world. Please help what does this mean?

  11. I was standing by a glass case, in a foreign land, looking at several dead babies. The one closest to me started to move. It was coming alive. I knew I had to contact the parents. They came. I could see the mother laying in a fetal position crying. The father went to his baby. Said to the wife, I told you to have faith. So, what does this signify???

  12. I had a dream about a woman who gave birth in adom and people were angry and couldn’t believe this. I rescued the baby by giving it to someone so that I can later give it back to the mother. Please explain

  13. Hi i just had a dream that i was holding a baby girl so preety close to me. And another fine baby boy wad walking infront. I was taking them somewhere walking over a small concrete bridge when suddenly it caved in the middle even though it was not totally broken. I protected the girl in my arms while the boy stumbled but didnt fall he was shaķing in fear. I asked him if he could make it across he said no. So i used one free hand to urge him açross while i held unto the girl then jump down from the slab thus saving both babies. Girl was younger than boy, the children belonged to a handsome young man who looked at me with disaproving eyes. Earlier in the dream i was kissing this young man and felt a really powerful emotion such that i had to be distracted away from him to meetup with those two children. Funny the man seemed strangely familiar. And he helped adjust some linens hanging on the bridge i just droped down from. What does this mean?

  14. This strangely makes sense. I don’t want children, I’m not expecting any, but I still had a dream where I was holding and protecting a baby. The fact that a baby could represent immaturity and childlike characteristics totally makes sense to me. Perhaps I want to preserve that part of myself?

  15. I dreamt that my mother gave birth to three babies. In my dream, I was feeling happy. They were so beautiful but they were so small, all three of them fit my hands while I hold them with red cloth. I named one of them but I can no longer recall the name I gave.

    • Perhaps the three babies mean there are three issues you may have with your mom, or that your mom was helping you with….things that you are more equipped to deal with now at your now place in life. Red means energy, action and new beginning. The ideas/issues are small now but they will help you grow, move on and develop. I hope this helps….peace.

  16. I’m a man. Had a dream of holding a baby girl, no more than several months that needed caring for. She was crying and at first I was reluctant to go anywhere near, a beautiful baby girl who smiled and settled into my chest. The whole sense of the room was one of peace. The room had an atmosphere and surroundings of white, light and airiness with wide open vistas to a sun soaked landscape. Once settled and sleeping I rested her in her cot but she woke and cried when there and out of my arms.
    She wasn’t mine and don’t have children but it has left me feeling warm, without any anxiety and with a kind of contentment. As it was such a strong and vivid dream and woke me up. Would enjoy hearing someone’s interpretation; though I may have already answered myself writing it out?

  17. I had a dream the other night about a newborn baby, then today, I had it again. I was carrying a big beautiful, clean baby on my shoulder, but the baby is light, can’t feel its weigh on my shoulder, and then he/she looked at me, because I was talking to him/her to hold me tight or he/she would fall.

    BTW, I’m single and I already signed a contract of working overseas, and I know it’ll be hard.

  18. I read the meaning of my dream of baby girl who was given to me clean and pretty and she made me feel so happy and she was happy and laughing and smuggling up to me

    What does this dream mean?

    • I think it means you are ignoring and putting away a new possibility or aspect of yourself that could mean a new beginning. Dreams are usually reflective of what is going on in a persons life…difficult to discern what a particular dream means in general because each life circumstances is different. peace
