A baby is something that needs to be constantly watched over. Even when it is time for it to take a bath, you are the one that needs to take the child and bathe it yourself because otherwise it will not be able to function. You will have to take care of it or else it will run the risk of drowning. To see a baby drowning in your dreams means that you have been given a lot of different responsibilities to attend to recently but you haven’t been able to make good use of them and you haven’t been paying as much attention as you should have. If you keep up this attitude and negligence you could seriously end up hurting yourself or someone else.
A baby is also thought of as your own sense of innocence and of childlike ways especially as a dream symbol. In many cases the child is thought of as a representation of that childlike spirit within yourself. To dream of drowning this child could either be a good or bad thing depending on how you’ve been carrying yourself recently. If you’ve been acting very childish and have not been mature about matters recently and you see yourself drowning a child in your dreams then this signifies that you are ready to move on from that childish line of thought and that kid-like line of thought. However a lot of people spend their entire adulthood trying to recapture that sense that sense of play that they give up in their childhood and it would be terrible to undermine that search that you are probably going through by destroying that part of yourself entirely. Don’t let this happen to you or you might never be able to reclaim that childlike sensitivity and sense of play.
