Here is another link about proper planting and care of daffodil bulbs.
Bone meal is not a recommended fertilizer for daffodil bulbs, containing to much nitrogen. You could use it as a top dress after the blooms have faded to feed the bulb for next spring.

Since I wan't sure what bulbs you were referring too, I listed a few links for you.
I myself urge less is more when adding bone meal to my bulb beds. To much tends to overfeed the bulbs and I get more greens then flowers.
