Q&A: Does my baby dream?

A lot of times when I check on my baby while she's sleeping, her eyes are twitching. Is she dreaming? When do babies start to dream?

The Bump Expert

It's definitely possible. Newborns are able to dream from the moment they're born. In fact, they dream more actively in their first two weeks of life than they ever will. Studies even show that dreaming could begin several months before birth. Some toddlers laugh in their sleep while others scream or cry -- but, reportedly, toddlers don't appear in their own dreams until around the age of three.

Q&A: Does my baby dream?

My baby would laugh in his sleep (well, it was more like smiling and shaking) a few weeks after birth, and he most definitely laughs and smiles in his sleep now at 13 months.

My toddler @ 14 months would laugh in her sleep and at other times cry. I think its definitely possible that babies do dream. Olo Hefa
