In the video, Kate starts out by folding and knotting a simple baby washcloth. Once it's tightly tied, she soaks it under the tap. After she'd knotted and soaked five washcloths, she places them in a small baking dish and slides them into her freezer. According to a comment Kate left on the video, she leaves them in there for 20 to 30 minutes, until they're "cold but not frozen". When they're cold enough, Kate hands the homemade teething toys to her little one, who has a ball sucking and chewing on them. TikTokers struggling with their own teething babies sung Kate's praises in the comments. One user had a suggestion to further improve upon Kate's hack: "Soak in cold chamomile tea, it makes it work even better to soothe!" they wrote. It's little tips and tricks like these — and the supportive community that forms around them — that help parents get through the daily struggles!
