What Does it Mean When you Dream About a Baby?

Congratulations! You just had a baby in your dream!

Babies symbolize new beginnings. 

If you dreamed of a baby, it generally means that you are very excited about the future. Something long-awaited is about to take place. 

Before we continue the dream analysis, you have to ask yourself some questions regarding your dream.

First of all, how did the baby make you feel? Did seeing it make you feel nervous? Were you happy to hold it?

Secondly, how did the baby feel or act? Was the baby jolly or fussy? 

Finally, what was your relationship with the baby? Did you give birth to it or were you simply holding it?

Starting with these questions we will continue to provide the answers you are looking for.

Dreaming about a baby while pregnant

If you dreamed about a baby while being pregnant, it could simply be a reflection of your waking life. 

You might feel great excitement and anxiety over bringing a new life to this world.

Pregnant women are special in many ways. Their psyche goes through as much change as their physical body. 

If you are pregnant, you should be aware that just like the baby, you are also being born as a new mother. You are growing alongside your baby.

Everything is normal and everything is a part of the process. Enjoy your pregnancy and the weird dreams it brings.

If you are not expecting and have no intention of getting pregnant in the foreseeable future, the remaining dream analysis is for you.

Dreaming about a baby being born

The synonym for giving birth is being in labor. The word labor in its original meaning holds the truth about your dream.

After putting in a lot of effort, you can finally reap the fruits of your hard work.

The process is not easy however you can be certain that the results will make it all worth it. 

This possibly relates to some business venture or if you are an artist, a work of art. 

You see your finished work as your baby which is finally ready to be presented to the world. There is a future success waiting for you.

Dreaming about a baby boy

Baby boys and baby girls are essentially the same. Their appearance, needs, and pure nature do not differ regardless of their gender. 

They, however, differ in our perception of them. This is why the dreams about having a baby boy or a baby girl carry different symbolism.

Boys are widely perceived as being the stronger ones. The baby boy represents the typically masculine traits such as power and courage.

The baby boy in your dream could be a sign that you are attaching these masculine traits to yourself. You are choosing power over weakness.

The baby when combined with male energy is a symbol of your true nature, gentle on the outside but inherently strong.

You can be certain that you can single-handedly deal with whatever crosses your path.

Dreaming about a baby girl

You probably consider girls to be sensitive, vulnerable, and serene. This dream is telling you that are missing all these traits in real life.

You feel out of touch with your feminine side which is why you gave birth to it in your dream.

Try letting go of the feeling that you have to control everything. Your dream is a good reminder to embrace your softer, more peaceful side.

You should let others pamper you, and take care of you. Your inner baby princess deserves it!

Dreaming about having twins

Having twins is always a surprise. 

Something unexpected is about to happen. However, this is something you have wanted for a long time.

Alternatively, this dream is your sign that you are ready to live your life to the fullest. 

Double the fun, double the struggles, but you would not have it any other way.

Dreaming about having a baby with someone 

Dreaming about having a baby with your partner could represent your current relationship.

It is important to recall whether you felt excited or scared at the thought of having a baby?

If you felt excited you are ready to take the relationship to a higher level. It does not necessarily mean that you would like to have a baby in real life as well. 

It means that your relationship is about to transform. You feel safe around your partner and you feel as if your love is still growing.

If on the other hand, you felt scared and anxious about bringing a baby into this world while staying in the relationship you are currently in, it could be a sign of a struggle.

You struggle to accept that life and love are impermanent. 

You are not the same person who chose your partner. It is OK to gradually set new priorities. 

Stay true to yourself and your partner. You should share the source of your anxiety with your partner. You need to have an honest discussion about your future.

Dreaming about holding a baby 

Holding a baby in your dream could mean that you are an overly caring person. You are always there for your friends and you are often everyone’s shoulder to cry on.

The baby you were holding could be a symbol of your inner child. You require to be taken care of as well. 

Do not be afraid to ask for help and guidance. Vulnerability does not equal weakness.

Find someone you would trust your inner-self with and pass the baby onto someone else’s hands, even if it is just for a moment.

Dreaming about a crying baby

If the baby in your dream was crying it is a cry for help. You are in desperate need of attention.

You probably feel neglected and lonely.

Instead of seeking companionship from other people, you should first start accepting yourself as your life-long partner.

Be kind to yourself, take yourself to places you have always wanted to go.

Your inner baby is crying for attention, so start paying attention to it and listen to what it says.

The takeaway from the dream 

Dreaming about a baby is always a good sign. 

The baby symbolizes purity, good intentions, and a bright future ahead.

There are always hardships in life. However, this dream tells you that all your hard work and your struggles will pay off in the end. You need to persevere. 

You have chosen the right path. You should stay focused and hopeful and the journey into your future will remain as smooth as a baby’s bottom.
