It’s definitely possible. Newborns are able to dream from the moment they’re born. In fact, they dream more actively in their first two weeks of life than they ever will. Studies even show that dreaming could begin several months before birth. Some toddlers laugh in their sleep while others scream or cry — but, reportedly, toddlers don’t appear in their own dreams until around the age of three.
