Serena Williams is asking Twitter for help as daughter Alexis Olympia begins teething.
The tennis superstar tweeted Sunday, “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),”
She added, “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??”
The new mom received tons of suggestions from followers including frozen teething rings, rubbing her gums, and giving little Alexis carrots. Other shared support and reminded Williams that this is a common thing moms go through.
No update on whether any of the suggestions helped, but we have a feeling that Williams will get through this just fine.
