A more in depth look at the meaning of baby and baby actions expanded from my Top 25 Common Dream Symbols.
Babies in dreams can have several different meanings but usually a baby represents: a new idea, new concept or new project that you have given birth to; A responsibility you have now accepted, a personal project or thing to do. It’s your ‘baby’. For example your baby could be a creative idea you have and plan to show the world such as draw, paint, put into music, or starting a business, new job or new project. Something that is yours alone, that you have birthed. Be a proud parent and display your baby to the world!
A baby: Can represent aspects of you being or acting like a baby, immature, innocent, a new personality trait coming out or starting to be visible in you.
Feeding a baby: You are feeding and nourishing your project. Watching it grow and mature seeing progression. Could also be you encouraging or nourishing the child part of yourself which if it is a brat is not good!
Dead Baby: To dream of a dead baby or dying baby is not a pleasant dream but keep in mind this is not a real baby it is a representation of an important project, job, idea or creative endeavor that you have let die or dropped accidentally. This dream could be pointing out to you that whatever this baby represented it would be wise for you to take care and not let your ideas die or sacrifice your ideas or projects for the sake of someone or something else. This is something many of us do to ourselves often (think of others before ourselves) could point out that you have allowed another person or situation to take away your hopes and ideas to the point of you letting it, the ‘baby’ die.
Bathing a Baby: Points to you making a fresh start, cleaning up messes and correcting mistakes you have made. Wash away the negative (dirty) stuff and starting new.
Dropping a Baby: Can be pointing out to you that you have dropped a valuable project or idea or hope. Take heed to this dream and consider what the baby represents. You may want to reconsider the action you are about to take in “dropping” it.
Killing a baby: This dream is asking you to look at what you are doing in waking life and is it really worth sacrificing your ‘baby’? Is it worth the cost?
Losing a baby: Losing your important and precious ideas, or losing hope in relation to something valuable to you
A lot of babies: Could be pointing out too many responsibilities, options, goals, or even problems or opinions for you to deal with.
Twin Babies: Can represent two equally valuable projects or ideas or goals.
I hope that these meanings can help you in your dream interpretations. As always, I remind you to ask yourself first what a symbol means to you the dreamer before consulting a dream dictionary. A good thing about dream dictionaries is that they can lead you or prompt you to meaning if you are stuck on something. Sometimes by even not agreeing with a meaning you can define what it does mean to you!

Falling in your dream is basically waking back up – the action of returning to consciousness.
The old tale that if you fall and hit the ground in your dream that you will die in your sleep IS NOT TRUE. If you hit the ground in the dream, you will bounce right back and the dream will continue… falling at this point would have the meaning of “falling from grace” or “fall on your face” = embarrassment. It is a play on words, falling in love, heading for a fall, falling down on the job, etc.
Drowning in dreams means you are in a situation that you feel you are in over your head, being in too deep, overwhelmed or emotionally overcome. If you dream you are drowning in muddy or murky water this indicates you are overwhelmed emotionally. There is always a possibility that it is an ESP warning. It is important that you note the background of the dream and your emotions/feelings in the dream.

A perfect poem describing the power of our words and thoughts.
Thoughts Are Things
I hold it true that thoughts are things;
They’re endowed with bodies and breath and wings;
And that we send them forth to fill
The world with good results, or ill.
That which we call our secret thought
Speeds forth to earth’s remotest spot,
Leaving its blessings or its woes
Like tracks behind it as it goes.
We build our future, thought by thought,
For good or ill, yet know it or not.
Yet so the universe was wrought.
Thought is another name for fate;
Choose then thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate.
– Henry Van Dyke
Take a look around you right this moment and see what you have reaped from the thoughts you have sown. Are you experiencing love, prosperity, happiness, success???? Or are you experiencing less than?
All of our thoughts have brought us where we are today – good or bad whether you know it or not. Take capitive of every thought you have and remember that love assumes the best!
