    Why do babies smile when they are asleep?

    They are dreaming.

    They might be children very new to the world, unable to talk and still developing in many ways.. But their little brains are very capable of dreams.

    Considering they are innocent and usually have not been introduced to the horrific evil in the world (Thank God) the dreams are usually going to consist of things that please, excite, and make them happy.. (which is nearly everything to children, because EVERYTHING is new to them)

    Wouldn't you smile while dreaming if nothing bad ever happened in them?

    Children are the most precious thing on earth.

      Yes, even I have smiled while dreaming, not sure of the reasons though :-)
      So the babies dream is it? I mean, what kind of dreams could that be since they have no knowledge of anything in that age..!!

    They dream what they see during the day.  Colors excites them, so maybe they see different shapes,colors, faces of their mommies and Dads.  My grandmother told me that they dream about their past lives. BTW cute picture:)

      Oh yes.! Never thought of it. May be, the colors and smiling mom's face, might be printed in their minds which appear in dreams, again making them smile. Because, usually with everyone that's what happens. We react to what we see in consc mind.

    Watching a baby smiling is the sleep is, probably, one of the best wonders in the world that gives the mother the feeling of ultimate happiness and realization of her accomplishment on the Earth. There are different suppositions that make it possible to answer the question of why babies smile in the sleep. Scientists, who study human brain and emotions, state that this is the result of the brain's reaction in a certain sleep phase. According to their observations, babies smile in the light sleep phase - only when they just fall asleep or when they are going to awake. Well, this is what experts say and this is what I have read in the numerous articles.

    Even though, these observations have scientific background, I believe - no, I'm sure that babies smile in their sleep just because they live the emotions they have experienced during the certain period of their day, again and again. By the way, people of all ages express emotions in the sleep and babies are not an exception. They may also cry, shout out something, fight or do other things, but, most often, babies smile and this is one of the best pictures in the world!

      Very informative Viki. Not only babies but everyone express emotions. But why Babies..?! when they know nothing of outside world, other than their mom's smile and some dolls perhaps, that make them smile, what else could be in their dreams.
