Serena Williams Asked for Breastfeeding Advice on Twitter and Here’s What Happened
New mom Serena Williams may be the most successful tennis player on earth, but she’s not afraid to admit she’s new to this whole parenting thing.
The mama of three-month-old Alexis Olympia took to Twitter last night to ask her followers for advice on nursing and share her fears about weaning.
“Fellow moms: How long did you breastfeed? Is it weird that I get emotional when I even just think about when it's time to stop?” Williams wrote.

A swarm of helpful moms on Twitter responded almost immediately, sharing their own stories of breastfeeding and offering encouragement.
Like they say, it takes a village. Or 10.1 million Twitter followers.
