Start with a cute basket, bin, tote, or bag. Then, you can customize the contents, filling it with pregnancy must-haves and unique items that you know the mama-to-be will enjoy.

Tips for How to Soothe a Teething Baby

How to Soothe a Teething Baby

For many parents, teething can be one of the most difficult stages of their baby’s development. Just when you feel like you’ve hit your groove and are on somewhat of a schedule, here come the baby teeth. Teething can cause all sorts of undesirable symptoms for your little one, like sore gums, constant drooling and difficulty sleeping. It’s enough to make even the most even-tempered baby cranky and irritable.

No parent likes to see their baby uncomfortable, and worse, feel helpless as to how to provide relief. While there is no magic cure for how to soothe a teething baby, there are some tried and true teething tips for soothing baby’s sore gums. Keep in mind, no two babies are exactly alike, so what works for a friend’s baby, may not work for yours. You may need to try different things to see what works best for you.

A Labor of Love

A Labor of Love

First and foremost, thank you for being part of our community and for taking the time to explore our site. It is our hope that Hatched Market serves as more than a place of commerce but a source of inspiration, connection, and creativity.

The Hatched story is a story of rebirth (fitting). About two years ago, I started a business that failed miserably. To be quite honest, I don't think my heart was really in it. It wasn't until the pandemic and fibroid diagnosis that I really started to refocus and reconsider what I really cared about.

Newborn Essentials

While newborn “essentials” tend to vary from parent to parent, most mamas discover the products that work for them early on. We chatted with new mama to Delilah, (and Hatched Baby’s word guru) Staci about the products, clothes, and grooming supplies she can’t live without.

Read on for Staci’s newborn essentials.
Newborn Essentials

Aden + Anais Swaddles
These were lifesavers in our house after our little one was born. Swaddling was hard enough, but so many swaddles came apart after a few seconds once we bundled our babe up. These not only stayed intact, but they also got softer with every wash.  

WubbaNub Pacifier
This pacifier kept our little one asleep for hours on end. The attached stuffed animal made it easy to find, and also kept it in her mouth longer.

Oeuf Mittens
Our daughter started scratching at her little face from day one, and these totally saved us. Besides being super-cute and super-soft, they’re also breathable.

Zoe Organics Bath Wash
I’m super particular about the products I use on my little girl. This body wash (and everything else from the line!) is made with pure, organic oils and smells natural and refreshing.  It delivers the perfect amount of suds, too.

Zoe Organics Everything Balm
Everyone in our household uses this balm! Moisturizing, healing, and protecting, it keeps skin soft, and even works on diaper rash. Obsessed.

Cleobella Diaper Bag
The most stylish diaper bags in the game. I’ve been known to use mine for travel, too.  

Newborn Essentials
Kickee Pants ANYTHING

Soft to the touch, Kickee Pants onesies offer up just the right amount of warmth (which is important since LA is super hot right now). My little one lives in pieces from this line – so comfortable.

Extra Large Blankets
My husband and I started taking our little girl to the park just a few days after she was born. We love snuggling up and staring at the trees.

4Moms Mamaroo
We started using this the day we came home from the hospital. It instantly put our little one to sleep because it sways side to side like parents do. I recommend using it early on so your mini gets used to it.
