This Is What It Means When You Dream About Having A Baby

Dreams can all have unique meanings and interpretations, but you shouldn't take what you see in your dreams literally. If you dream about having a baby, you may be tempted to go out and buy a pregnancy test, but don't take off running to your nearest drug store just yet. Dreams about babies are common. Depending on the context of how you're seeing the baby, these dreams can have several interpretations. Seeing a baby in your dream with purple sparkling skin or reciting the lyrics to a Britney Spears song in an adult voice, may not point you in the direction of the meaning of your dream, but there might be other factors present that can.

In general, dreams about a baby without much context surrounding it is a sign of new beginnings, according to Bustle, as well as a symbol of your good, pure nature. They tend to be associated with a reflective period, a growth period, or with a need to tend to responsibilities according to Best Life Online. Bustle says that a baby can signify innocence or purity, but it can also point toward emotional regression, fears, and anxieties. 

While you shouldn't panic, or start thinking about names if you're dreaming about babies, you might want to familiarize yourself with what it could mean.

Babies in dreams aren't always happy

Dreaming about babies doesn't sound harrowing, but in some cases, it can be. If your dream baby isn't giving you positive vibes, it might be time to check in with your fears and anxieties. If you're dreaming about forgetting your baby, you may be neglecting something in your life that brings you joy, according to Bustle. If, in your dream, you are the baby, you might be craving some attention and care from those close to you.

No one likes to see a baby crying in real life, so seeing one in your dreams doesn't exactly make for a peaceful sleep. Dreaming about a crying baby could be a sign that there is something you're not tending to for yourself. This can be related to goals that you have yet to accomplish or to your anxieties about your ability to do something. This can even point toward your fears regarding having children.

Also pointing toward anxiety, is the presence of an evil baby in your dreams. While you likely won't encounter an evil baby in real life, you might encounter one that feels like something out of "Pet Sematary" as you sleep. An evil baby may signify that you're experiencing fears surrounding the new beginnings.

The baby's mood has different meanings

Seeing a baby in your dreams can be an extremely positive sign. A dancing baby is a joyful sight in real life, so it makes sense that it's a positive sign in your dreams. When you dream about a dancing baby, this likely means that you're feeling good about the future ahead of you and may have some opportunities on the horizon. If the dancing baby you're dreaming about is your own, it may be a sign that you're experiencing great excitement and positivity regarding the child's future, according to Bustle. Dreaming that you find a baby can also be a good sign, as it means that you're aware of your special talents.

Like any dream, dreams about babies are always open to interpretation. While it may not predict the next major chapter in your life, it might just remind you of something that's been taking up space in your subconscious.
