Many people wonder the same thing on the Internet, and there is little scientific explanation because babies are not communicative subjects . Well, to find out what a baby dreams about, we just figure out a reliable source: Dr. Edward Kulich, a pediatrician who specializes in children’s sleep habits and author of “The Best Baby Sleep Book”.
“Because we know that babies have REM sleep (rapid eye movement, sleep stages with fast-moving eyeball normally associated with dreaming), we can assume that young children absorb their daily experience,” said Kulich according to Shine.
So what part of their daily lives may appear in their dreams?
“Eating, smelling, selecting, feeling warmth and comfort, hungry or bored, or the fragrance of the environment around them.”
One source of a baby’s dream is you, the parent. Dr. Alan Greene, a pediatrician from New York, believes that baby’s dreams are filled with their mother and father. Sometimes their dreams are fun (fresh milk!) Sometimes, they have nightmares. “The baby can feel the stress of being sick, hungry and left alone,” said Greene. “And all things worth crying, could also enter their dream.”
Some child researchers believe that nightmare began to appear at the age of two years old, but according to Greene “crying peaks, the first six weeks, is also the peak age for nightmares.”
However, most experts would say, there is no sure way to know what a baby dreams about, because they are not yet able to express themselves. Some mothers may not agree with this opinion. What about you?Recent search: babies in dreams, baby sleepingTagged with:
