Do baby mystery snails need calcium?

I have a few baby mystery snails in my fry tank, do they need the cuttlebone at this point? And is that safe to put in with fry? I don't want to harm my fry, but I don't want to harm my snails either.

I have a piece of cuttlebone in all my tanks. The 10 gallons have about an inch long piece, the 29 has about a 2 inch piece. Basically 2 cuttlebones are broken into pieces and in every tank in the house. So far it's not hurt anyone and all my snails have really healthy looking shells.

They didn't seem to bother the cory and platy fry at all. They aren't fry any longer so they grew up just fine.
