Burial of unamed babies #general

M. Schejtman <mario_m@...>


I have heard of a custom where a baby that was born dead or died before a
his brit, was buried together with an adult that passed away around the time
the baby died, so that he wil sort of "guard over him", and take his soul
with his up to heaven. the tomb then would only have a marker for the adult
as the child has no name.

Does this sound true? is this aJewish custom? Is it practised today as well?
