In many ancient medical practices they advocate someone eat the part of the animal that they are having problems with. In your case I guess that would mean you should eat bones according to that POV. Better get chomping.

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.
