Do you let your baby suck on meat bones?

I personally do not. I think its kinda ick ,lol
My dh suggested that when we had ribs the other night...to give our 8 month old a bone to suck on. He said a lady at one of his jobsites at work told him she gave her baby a pork chop bone to suck on and she loved it,lol.
I don't know..maybe I'm just being snooty..but its kinda gross to think about.
I wouldnt suck on a bone.

  • That's disgusting, not to mention pointless.

    It's a child, not a dog.

  • I never thought about it but when we had Thanksgiving when ds was 7 months, my hubby grandmother gave ds a turkey bone and he loved it. I was shocked at first but he was enjoying it so much I didn't want to take it away. It had the same affect as turkey had on the rest of us and he passed out on hubby's shoulder still clutching the bone (we got a really cute photo). Considering all the stuff they put in their mouths, a bone is now the least of my worries.

  • LOL! No, I wouldn't, the bone also could splinter in the childs mouth. That's gross!
