On average, an adult spends a third of their life sleeping. Children snooze even more - and sometimes have correspondingly vivid dreams. The following blog tells you how children dream.
Children already dream in the womb
Experts assume that unborn babies already have dreams in the womb, but these are still “empty”, as growing babies show eye movements that also occur in the important REM sleep phase. Doctors were able to demonstrate these REM phases as early as the 24th week of pregnancy. Dreaming is therefore already important for unborn children in order to process stimuli and sensations in the womb.
