Check out this video of Indian baby tossing from the roof of a mosque in western India, which, according to the AP is based on a belief that when babies are tossed, then caught in a sheet it ensures good health and prosperity for their families. I can't comment on the issue in total, because I'm not in India, I'm not Indian, and other cultures have a right to their beliefs IMO. Other places likely think it's odd that we don't all co-sleep or breastfeed so who am I to say anything about this. However, what the baby safety mindset in me will say is don't try this at home. In fact, studies show that tossing your baby around, even gently can cause shaken baby syndrome, or other harm to your baby. When holding your baby be careful and if you play rough know it can hurt your baby. Read more about why you shouldn't toss your baby around like a bag of potatoes.
