Serena Williams Asks For Help With Her Teething Baby—And Social Media Came To The Rescue

Motherhood is hard, even for one of the world’s best athletes. Tennis pro Serena Williams reached out on her Instagram last Sunday pleading with moms everywhere for advice about her teething baby. Williams listed all of the methods she’s tried so far, all to no avail.

“Teething- aka the devil – is so hard. Poor Alexis Olympia has been so uncomfortable. She cried so much (she never cries) I had to hold her until she fell asleep. I’ve tried amber beads… cold towels…. chew on mommies fingers…. homeopathic water (lol on that one) but nothing is working. It’s breaking my heart. I almost need my mom to come and hold me to sleep cause I’m so stressed. Help? Anyone??”
