Somehow training babies not to cry when parents aren't around doesn't seem very Paleo. Thoughts? Any insight on what the implications of this practice might be?

As long as the bone is safe like a knuckle bone and not sharp or too small I think a bone is a good 'teething ring' with great flavour. I'd just monitor the baby while the bone was being chewed.
