What do babies dream of that makes them cry while asleep?

What do babies dream of that makes them cry while asleep?

Unknown: Since there is no way to research this area (babies don't converse or describe events) there is no way to know. Age regression hypnosis has been able to tap that information as far back as 2 yo, when kids worry more about abandonment or getting lost than anything. Younger kids? No one knows. ...Read more

I keep having a dream about trying to save baby seals. What can this mean?

I keep having a dream about trying to save baby seals. What can this mean?

Dream interpretation: Dreams are rarely literal. Baby seals can stand for anything that has a unique meaning for you. A general meaning would be someone helpless or vulnerable. Your unique connections will be of more use. Logic is an obstacle. Let your mind wander. Who is "just a baby seal". ...Read more

I think that I may have been molested as a child. Not sure if I dreamed it up. How can I tell?

I think that I may have been molested as a child. Not sure if I dreamed it up. How can I tell?

Difficult issue: I think all of us would like to understand why we react to life/situations the way we do and or why it differs from how others seem to. Media has noted this can produce problems in life, Studies have also shown that the idea can be implanted or acquired as an easy reason for problems.Counseling with a well trained therapist is a good way to start, but be leary of the easy answer. ...Read more

What does it mean when you dream that you have a baby?

What does it mean when you dream that you have a baby?

No one can say: Oh, if only we still had dr. Sigmund freud with us! But since his time, with ideas that dreams are "wish fulfillment" fantasies, the best guess is that dreams are what we experience as our brains go about consolidating and organizing our recent experiences. You may have thought of having a baby recently or know or heard of someone expecting or having had a baby, and so on. A good dream! ...Read more

What does it mean when I dream about having a baby? Always a baby boy this is like the 3rd dream with in the last couple of weeks

Perhaps you want one: Symbolism in dreams can be highly personal and often requires the person to think carefully about it. Still, a recurring dream is usually significant, and something you may want to try to figure out the meaning of. The simplest explanation is that you would like to have a baby boy, but that may not be correct in your case. What could a baby boy mean to you? What thoughts and feelings come up? ...Read more

Doctor why do I keep dreaming of having a baby?

Doctor why do I keep dreaming of having a baby?

Baby dreams: Dreams about babies can mean many things -- and the best person to interpret a dream is the dreamer herself/himself. We all have unconscious associations to symbols like that, and these associations are very individual. Have you been consciously considering having a baby? Are you birthing a new project? Contemplation may reveal your unconscious dream messages to yourself -- or speak w/therapist. ...Read more

When does a child start to dream? And at what age do nightmares or night terrors begin?

When does a child start to dream? And at what age do nightmares or night terrors begin?

Before birth: Rem (rapid eye movement) sleep, the stage of sleep when most dreaming takes place, is present before birth, and at birth comprises about half the sleep cycle, declining gradually to about 25% into teenage and adulthood. Nightmares occur during rem sleep, but night terrors occur during deep non-rem sleep. Both can start during infancy. ...Read more

My 15month old baby won't drink milk in a regular cup only in his bottle still how can I take that away? Is it normal for him to have bad dreams?

My 15month old baby won't drink milk in a regular cup only in his bottle still how can I take that away? Is it normal for him to have bad dreams?

Put water in it: Infants are pattern driven and find change difficult. If you put water in the bottle it becomes boreing but may fill a self settling need. It will also keep him hydrated until he comes around. If you put the good stuff in a hard nose sippy cup and leave a few empties around the house as reminders, he can decide to change onn his own terms. ...Read more

What to do if I am pregnant and had a dream about the umbilical cord chocking the baby?

Difficult issue: Most women have at least one such fear/dream during pregnancy.I think you would be odd if you did not. Cord incidents do happen, but rarely. The baby flips the most during the 10-14 wk period. But nature tolerates these events. I have had a baby with 5 neck wraps that grew up, was a cheerleader and graduated a few yrs ago. I have seen a kid with 3 true knots in the cord who did well. Good luck. ...Read more

I started having nightmares in my early pregnancy. I dream of alien baby, wild animals which I need to defend for my life. How could I reduce those?

You're normal. REALLY: First thing, know that what you are experiencing is common, even normal. Animal themes in dreams are often tied to the increased awareness that we too are part of the animal kingdom. Your mama-bear instincts may also be preparing your to battle for your baby (if needed). Journal your dreams in detail and look for recurrent themes. Also, try additional ways to be mindful, at peace, before bed. ...Read more

I dream about becoming a pediatrician. Can you tell me how a doc deals with a child-patient loss, cuz I'm afraid of not being able to save a kids life.

Loss: Every physician. Deals with child/patient loss differently. It is certainly not easy but I think that is part of what make us better doctors. To have empathy, to show compassion for not only the child but the families, to be human is what I think makes a good physician. ...Read more

My baby is 4 months and 2 weeks old and sometimes she refuses to drink her formula. She sometimes dream feeds so when she is almost asleep then she will feed. She has about 4 wet nappies a day. What can I do and should I be concerned?

My baby is 4 months and 2 weeks old and sometimes she refuses to drink her formula. She sometimes dream feeds so when she is almost asleep then she will feed. She has about 4 wet nappies a day. What can I do and should I be concerned?

Feeding: If you are starting some baby cereal and or baby solids, they often will not take as much formula as before.
As long as she urinates/stolls everyday and weight gain continues without any other symptoms, this is probably in the normal range and can be observed. Welcome to health tap, Dr. Ivy Fisher ...Read more

Can nightmares hurt my unborn baby? I have been experiencing very vivid dreams that cause my anxiety and blood pressure to go up.

NO!!: Nightmares will NOT hurt your baby!! (BTW the reverse may be more common eg: fear of harming your baby--giving nightmares. Discuss your SLEEP HYGIENE with your Primary Care Provider! See what the reason for your vivid dreams may be...ask your OB-GYN if he/she has a suggestion BUT STOP WORRYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a newborn baby days ago and haven't slept at all. I feel very confused, hearing voices imagining conversations and almost dreaming while awake?

Sleep deprivation: Have someone watch the baby for several hours each day or night so you can get some sleep. If that does not resolve your symptoms you will need to get additional help and evaluation. If you have any thoughts of hurting yourself or others please seek help immediately by calling 911 or going to the emergency department. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. Although I do dream analysis with my patients, it is something in which the patient ultimately interprets their own dream in the context of their own life. Yes, there are books that tell you what different things are supposed to mean. But, frankly, dreams may have multiple interpretations at different levels that apply. I wouldn't put too much stock into someone telling you what your subconscious is trying to say to you after reading two sentences sent via email. Take care. ...Read more

Husband and I want baby. Taking folic acid also. I keep having dreams of me and my baby. Why? Irregular periods after d&c due to miscarriage. Please help

I like the dreams: Well your dreams sound positive! While there are a host of physical, hormonal, and not uncommonly, medical issues with a partner that can contribute yo infertility, it seems women are more likely to get pregnant when they feel safe. So have a simple check up. Get some reassurance. Not infrequently it takes time, more than a year or so, even for quite fertile couples to conceive. ...Read more

Seek supportive Tx: You might try your OBGYN for a good referral to a specialist mothering psychotherapist. Especially if the birth was recent, this may be like post-partum depression. It's not unusual to need some help through these times and you'll feel much better once you find some. Your children will benefit too as will all those who are close to you. Don't wait. This time is precious for all of you. ...Read more

The partner that I'm with forces me to have sex with him. His family dreamed a baby and know I'm 12weeks pregnant, I don't want it and want to termin?

Who can help you?: I'm really concerned about you. If your partner forces you to have sex, it sounds like an unsafe relationship. If you have a friend or family member you can trust, talk to them. You still have the option to terminate the pregnancy, but it might affect your safety if your partner finds out. 408-683-4118 is the gilroy women's shelter.

I've been having vivid dreams. About having a baby. And pregnancy. Then I wake up crying? Could I be preggo?

It's on your mind: Unprotected sex near the time of ovulation is necessary. If you had it, it may be in your mind as a fear, concern or hope. The dream, no matter how intense or realistic is not evidence - but if you miss your period - do a test or have one done w/ an exam. Those are the results to believe. If you don't want a baby now, always use protection - for avoiding STDs it is the smart way to have sex. Best! ...Read more

Scan showed my baby had hydrops by lungs and heart. I ended pregnancy at 26 weeks. I feel guilty constantly and can't move on? I'm having bad dreams

Get counselling: You need to see a professional counselor to discuss this issue at length. Making the decision with regret can lead to depression which will not go away until it is addressed. You must remember that this pregnancy was NOT normal and would have required special care both emotionally, physically, and financially had it lived, that perhaps you would not have been able to given. ...Read more

What are the kinds of dreams?

Can be anything: Dreams are a way for the brain to organize recent experiences, process memories, and put both into context with regard to our past experience and understanding. They also provide an avenue to unattained desires. While there are common adjectives used to describe dreams (i.e. bad dreams. nightmares, wet dreams, day dreams, etc.), the subject matter of dreams is infinite and not easily classified. ...Read more
