A baby bottle, as a symbol, represents your nurturing and caregiving nature. Perhaps there is someone in your waking life who needs extra care and support? As such, dreaming about a baby bottle may be drawing attention to the fact that you need some TLC at the moment.
Or perhaps this dream is suggesting that you should give yourself the love and nourishment you so deserve.
You are the one with the baby bottle.
Your subconscious may be drawing attention to your need to nurture yourself and/or someone else. If you had the dream because of someone else’s need for promotion, the baby bottle symbolizes that person’s desire to be cared for by you. Alternatively, if you felt in lack of some care and support while you were having this dream, then perhaps it was your subconscious trying to get you to pay attention to your own needs.
This interpretation applies if you were the one who had the dream about holding a baby bottle. In this case, your dreaming mind may have been drawing attention to someone you know who is in need of nurturing or support. Alternatively, perhaps you are feeling particularly needy yourself at present, and the baby bottle symbolizes your desire for care and support from others. Maternal instincts may be prompting you to look after someone you know.
In your dreams, if you lose the baby bottle, it may suggest that you have lost sight of what is really important in your life at present. You may be focusing too much on day-to-day tasks and neglecting to look after yourself properly. Alternatively, you might be feeling overly responsible for others and ignoring your own needs.
This may suggest that you are about to receive some good news or become involved in something which will leave you satisfied and content.
If a baby is drinking from the bottle, this suggests that it’s time for you to stop neglecting your own needs and start looking after them instead. Whether motherly feelings arise is mainly dependent on your own circumstances.
You make the milk go inside the bottle by shaking it. If you dream of making the milk go inside a bottle, or shaking it, then this may indicate that you are trying to make something work in a difficult situation. You feel that it’s in danger of being wasted unless you act quickly.
To make milk go inside the bottle is a co-dependent action. You might be too demanding and giving too much attention to detail in one particular task, thus neglecting other things that need your attention. Being self-centred is, of course, not the best solution either. However, it would be best if you remembered that it’s also essential to fulfil your responsibilities in life without neglecting yourself.
The dream may indicate that you try to get certain things done with little effort. You feel that you don’t have the energy to do your job correctly, so you let others take advantage of you and your goodwill.
Feeding a baby with a bottle in your dream may also symbolize nurturing your inner child. In this case, you may be neglecting certain aspects of your life that are important to you. It would be best if you learned to take care of yourself in order to provide the necessary balance and security for others around you.
In waking life, you may be neglecting to provide some nurturing or comfort for someone in need. You do not want to let others down, but you must also not neglect your own needs.
Suppose you forget to feed the baby in your dream. In that case, this can indicate a fear of inadequacy or not fully understanding the responsibility that you have undertaken in some area of your life. Suppose you are feeding the baby with an empty bottle. In that case, this may suggest that you feel there is no future for the situation. As such, you are unable to see any way of progressing or accomplishing anything.
If you see an unusual shaped bottle in your dream, then, in this case, the bottle could refer to something that is not normal or natural but somewhat distorted. It may also be that what you have been presented with seems too good to be true. Therefore, it must be approached with caution and looked at from a distance before deciding whether to attempt anything .
The bottle could also represent an actual person you feel is holding you back in life, and as such, it suggests that you are feeling trapped or imprisoned by them; they continue to restrict and limit what you can do. This may be due to personal feelings of guilt and responsibility that they place on you, or it could be that they are simply controlling, making decisions for you without consulting your wishes. To get to the bottom of this, it is always best to focus on the bottle itself and its shape, which will lead you in the right direction.
So the main thing to consider here is who this person is and how they are acting towards you. Perhaps it’s a close friend or family member that cares for you deeply but at times acts like your mother when she wants to take care of you. Often, there may be some guilt in these cases if you refuse their help because they’re so determined to be there for you, sometimes even resorting to passive-aggressive behaviour.
There can also be a friend or family member who’s very overprotective and wants to save you from everything - like a mother with an innocent baby who doesn’t know anything about life.
In your dream, if a strange person is with the baby bottle, then it means you’re seeking out some help that’s not from people who are familiar to you. The baby bottle can symbolize your dependencies on things in life, and by having a stranger provide it for you, there is no emotional attachment involved.
Take this dream as a sign that you might be ” depending” on others too much, and these people are probably not the ones who will support your best interest. You must learn to depend on yourself, God and His word for anything worthwhile in life.
