If you can win the Australian Open while pregnant, you can do just about anything. But even Serena Williams is finding the latest stage of new mom-ing—teething—to be an uphill battle against her emotions. 

Williams wrote: “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??”

Fans quickly came forth with advice for little Alexis and her stressed-out mom, suggesting everything from raw garlic to baby aspirin.

Serena, of all people, we know you can get through this. But can we talk about that Versace bib for a sec?
