My 6week old DD has dreams all the time but occasionally she will have a very obviously sad or happy dream. Last week she had a very sad dream and after whimpering for awhile she dropped the bottom lip and let out a big, sad sob! Her little heart was going crazy and it took me lots of cuddles and talking quietly to her to calm her back down again.
A couple of days ago she had a very happy dream. She was smiling and gave the closest to a laugh I have heard from her.
It gets me thinking. How young to people see these reactions to dreams in other babies and what could she possibly be dreaming about with so little life experience?
I would love to hear everyone's stories and theories on this!

I don't think babies dream in the sense that we do.
I think they experience feelings and sensations which cause a reaction.

Yeah, I was hypothesising that maybe she was just dreaming about not being able to find me when she was sad and about hanging out with me when she was happy (I swear im not conceited, lol). My friend suggested that she was remembering past lives and she is an old soul. Its fun to imagine.
I would love to know for sure what is going through her little brain though.

I'd love to know too! My little one has done this a few times as well...the lower lip started,then the huge sob...I almost cried myself watching her lol... She seemed so sad.
Luckily mummy cuddles fixed it
