In the first dream, the infant was being cared for by the dreamer, but belonged to someone else. The newborn in the second dream had been birthed by the dreamer.
These two dreamers have already provided feedback. The first one has already played out and the second
may or may not have. Time will make that clearer.

DREAM #1- CLEAN UP THE BABY
I dreamed I was in my bedroom waiting for my hair stylist, Angela, to come over and do my hair. While waiting, I was caring for Angela’s baby boy in my bedroom.
When Angela arrived I stated that the baby had not yet made a bowel movement, but then suddenly the baby began to grunt and push, and he pooped all over himself. I brought this to Angela’s attention, but she was on the phone, so I got a bowl of water and a wash cloth and cleaned the baby up.
What do you think this dream is saying?
This dream may very well be a warning dream, but not concerning anything hair stylist. The gal in the dream is most likely symbolic; her name meaning “messenger of God”.
Also, she is a hairstylist coming to fix your hair; that symbolizes a messenger of God improving your look/raising you up.
Our take on this is that the dream may be about a situation with your pastor or someone who could be described as a messenger of God.
The dream could be a warning dream about something birthed through this minister and then facilitated by you. It sounds like you will be offered a position or responsibility.
Unfortunately, if you accept, things will not go well, and in fact, spiral into an ugly situation which you will have to account for.
DREAM #2- RESURRECTED BABY
In my dream, I was taking a nap. (Exactly like I was in real life). Unlike real life, however, there was a baby in my bed sleeping very soundly. She was mine, and very close to a newborn. She was swaddled very tightly.
I rolled over, the bed shifted, and she rolled off the bed. Her swaddling blanket literally unwound her onto the floor. She was still swaddled very tightly once she hit the floor. (It was a surprisingly long blanket).
It was then I realized she was dead–she hadn’t been breathing. As my youngest son (11 years old in real life) was yelling at me from another room, I was pounding on the floor next to the baby saying: “Please wake up! Please start to cry!!”
My son didn’t know what was going on, and he was asking me for something small, like help with his homework. Finally, the baby’s eyes fluttered open a bit and she started breathing again. I picked her up and started nursing her. It was painful and awkward, but we finally got started. Then I woke up.
What do you think this dream is saying?
This dream is about SOMETHING taking place because of you (you have birthed it) which is very recent or will manifest very soon after the dream. This SOMETHING is well protected due to a long prior season of prayer or spiritual warfare.
Unexpectedly, this SOMETHING will appear to have lost support (by God or someone else), and it will seem as if this SOMETHING is over. This is not what you are looking for.
Here’s the message: Fear not. This is not over, even though it looks like it now! The next season in this area of your life may be awkward and uncomfortable at first, but you will eventually get behind it/back it/support it, and even nurture it.
I would take this as insight as well as encouragement. Ask yourself what area of your life this applies to and see if this makes sense at this time. If not, it will shortly.
Notes on symbolism:
Note that the baby is yours and a newborn. This is key as you birthed this something very recently such as a recent event or situation.
The falling represents a loss of support or your experiencing the feeling of loss of support such as the feeling God or someone else is not supporting you.
The dream does not necessarily prophesy a negative outcome which you will get used to, but may indicate a rearrangement or change.
Hopefully, these examples will help you more fully understand your dreams of babies.
