If a child cries in your dream, it portends problems, including health problems. If you had a strong and beautiful baby, then such a dream symbolizes mutual love and strong friendship. A dream in which a child takes the first independent steps means that in real life you can count on your own strength and not rely on someone else’s opinion. To babysit a child is to deceive a loved one. Taking a sick child in your arms is an unfavorable sign. You will experience deep sadness and mental anguish.
