    Unless a card says otherwise, you can activate a nonloyalty ability as many times as you can pay the cost.

    A loyalty ability is an activated ability with a loyalty symbol in its cost (as seen on planeswalkers). A nonloyalty ability is an ability that isn't a loyalty ability.

    "Loyalty abilities" are the activated abilities that Planeswalkers have:

    606.1. Some activated abilities are loyalty abilities, which are subject to special rules.

    606.2. An activated ability with a loyalty symbol in its cost is a loyalty ability. Normally, only
    planeswalkers have loyalty abilities.

    606.3. A player may activate a loyalty ability of a permanent he or she controls any time he or she has
    priority and the stack is empty during a main phase of his or her turn, but only if no player has
    previously activated a loyalty ability of that permanent that turn
    That said, by definition a nonloyalty ability is literally all activated abilities besides those printed on Planeswalkers. So, unless the ability specifically says otherwise (for example, Basking Rootwalla), you can activate an ability as many times during a turn as you can pay its cost.

    Since Dragon Hatchling doesn't have loyalty abilities (it's not a planeswalker), and its ability doesn't say there's a limit, you can safely and correctly conclude that its ability can be activated multiple times in a single turn, if you can afford to pay the ability's cost multiple times.
