When babies smile in their sleep do they see angels?
While growing up and having a newborn around you, you might have come across the little one smiling while sleeping.
Amid you admiring the innocence in that smile and your mind playing games of what could be the reason for that melting smile, an elder might have indeed stated, “This baby is listening to the whispers of angels.”
When babies sleep, they usually smile or laugh. This isn’t because of the angels watching over them – it’s just a coincidence! They may do this for one (or more) of these reasons:
Don’t let your child’s sleep problems turn into a NIGHTMARE!
New mothers, this is the only guide you’ll need!
The child is feeling happy and contented with his/her environment; He has dreams about something that made him really excited where other people involved seem like friends who are helping out in some way e .g., being given gifts by strangers which might explain why you find toys next awake-time someone visits your home.
He sees something in his dream that makes him smile. It’s a reflex. Babies naturally have little muscles around their eyes that make them smile. This makes him look like he’s smiling or laughing, but he isn’t really aware of it!
There are also underlying genetic factors that cause sleep-smiles in babies. If your baby is more likely to smile when she sleeps, then she might do this often during her waking hours too. She may be feeling happy about being around you or just having fun playing.
If your baby smiles when she’s awake, it’s likely because she’s happy. But if your baby is smiling while sleeping, it doesn’t mean anything special! Some babies are simply more cheerful than others – even in their sleep!
Some possible reasons why infants smile in sleep
- Developing Emotions: Your little one has a lot going on emotionally. She’s learning about the world around her and how it relates to her. And she can’t talk to you yet! To you, it seems like she doesn’t care about much. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Her emotions are developing slowly at first, but they’ll build up soon enough, and you’ll see them in action.
- Passing gas: Babies swallow a lot of air when they eat. And they can pass gas up to 20 times in an hour! So, it’s no wonder that your little one grins or snickers when he passes gas. You can hear it in his voice. Your baby’s laughter sounds different after a bout of gas than it does before. This is because he’s actually experiencing pain and discomfort due to the air trapped in his tummy.
- Dreaming about food: Your baby’s tiny tummy isn’t able to hold much, so she’ll be hungry again soon after eating. And while your little one is napping, she might be dreaming about her next meal. She could even dream about breastfeeding! And these dreams can make your baby grin or smile. According to Snopes, these dreams can make a baby smile or laugh in her sleep.
- She’s just a happy baby: Your little one may be just a naturally happy baby. And when she sleeps, her muscles are more relaxed. So, she might be smiling because her mouth is in its natural position.
The simple reason for your baby’s smiles in sleep might be that she’s just a happy, easy-going baby. But it’s also possible that she’s dreaming and smiling about something in her dreams.
There are different types of smiles in babies, too. If your baby’s mouth is turned down, then she looks sad or displeased about something. But if her mouth is open and she looks happy, then this might be a sleep-grin.
Whatever the reasons, these faces are to die for and must be preserved in photographs!
As Per Christian Belief
Babies are the purest creatures, and no one can conclude with a hundred percent confidence that angels are a part of their sleep. If the Holy Bible and other forums are to be believed, it would be perfectly fine in concluding that these tiny creatures and angels have conversations during sleep.
Ancestors second this thought by saying that angels are narrating stories to the babies that make them smile during sleeping, and the same stands true if a baby starts crying while asleep.
Lastly, it comes down to one’s personal beliefs. Let us know what you think about it?
