Haha. They seriously shouldn't be thrown in the air though. I knew a women who had a daughter who died from it. ---her dad was throwing her a noise distracted him looked away for a second and she hit the floor. She was between 1-3 I can't remember exact age it takes one mistake.

That is terrible, but I'd have to argue that throwing the baby in the air was not the problem so much as an irresponsible dad. My kid have been thrown in the air countless times and haven't been harmed. There will always be something out there that *could* harm or kill us (being in a car accident, for instance, is still one of the top causes of death in America.) You have to pick your battles after weighing the odds against the pros and cons. I am sorry for your friends, loss, though. I know what that feels like.

Nope:) we have always played rough. Always.
Our kids are very rough and tumble. They love it.
And, it's actually very beneficial for them to rough house. Flipping upside down, helps with balance. It's an inner ear thing.

DH does this and I freak out. He has a friend and they are always throwing the kids to each other. The kids love it, I hate it. He's not allowed to do it to DD. Lol.
