Dreaming About Babies — Dream Meanings (Chinese Theory)

Dreaming About Babies — Dream Meanings (Chinese Theory)

By Fercility JiangUpdated Sep. 15, 2021

In most people's perceptions, babies represent new life, hope, and the future, not only because of the high vitality of babies, but also because of people's internal expectations that life is actually a miracle. This is why we love babies very much. We even dream about babies sometimes... 

What does it mean to dream about babies? Is it good or not? Dreaming of a baby has specific meanings and predictions, as well as subjective interpretations according to the imagination of the dreamer. Let's take a look at the detailed interpretation of dreaming about babies with Chinese dream theory.

Chinese Dream Interpretation Theory

'Zhou Duke Interprets Dreams' (周公解梦Zhou Gong Jie Meng) is the classic Chinese text that is the basis of most traditional Chinese dream interpretation theory. It's traditionally attributed to the Duke of Zhou (reign 1042–1035 BC), revered as the 'God of Dreams' and the 'First Sage'.

General Meanings of Dreams about Babies

Dreaming of a baby, according to Duke of Zhou Interprets Dreams, on the one hand can indicate your own purity and simplicity, that is to say: you're on the non-social side, or it can imply your own fragility and desire to be loved. 

On the other hand, it could indicate your self-development or a transfer in the progress of life. You will get new opportunities and good luck, your previous hard work will be rewarded, and a new stage of life will begin.

On a purely practical level, which does not require interpretation: when people who are married, but do not have children yet, dream of a baby, sometimes it can mean that they want to have children in their hearts. When new parents dream that a baby is suffocating or in danger, it usually simply expresses great concern for their child.

Dream Meanings for Various Types of Babies

Dreaming of a baby girl indicates that you are likely to have a dispute with your family or friends about something. It is recommended that you calm down and discuss things peacefully in the near future so as not to damage the harmony.

Dreaming of a baby boy indicates that you need comfort in your heart and soul. If you are currently in a dilemma, you must return to the original goal to think clearly, or think the problem through carefully from the beginning to solve it.

Dreaming of a beautiful baby indicates that you will have good luck.

Dreaming of a sick baby means that you may suffer frustration at work or in love.

Dreaming of a dead baby is a sinister dream that heralds the destruction of your plans and hopes. You have lost, or will lose, something important to you.

Dreaming that you have a baby could be a sign that you are about to get pregnant or get rich and have a high income.

Dreaming of a baby in your arms indicates that what you have always wanted to have, or what you want to do, will be achieved as you wish, and you will be happy.

Meanings for Dreams of a Baby Doing Something

To dream of bathing a baby refers to the fact that when bathing a baby, you need to be careful, otherwise you will hurt the baby. This dream shows that the dreamer may not be a careful person in life, and he/she needs to be careful in what he/she does.
