Serena Williams holds 39 Grand Slam tennis titles, but even she finds child-rearing to be a huge challenge.

The new mom — who gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia on Sept. 1 — asked for advice on how to get a teething baby to sleep in a Twitter post on Sunday.

“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,” the 36-year-old tennis champion said. “Help? Anyone??”

The plea for an assist came after an earlier photo of her newborn with the caption: “Teething – aka the devil – is so hard.”

Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian were married in New Orleans last month, with stars including Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Kim Kardashian West in attendance.

This is not the first time Williams has asked her 10.2 million Twitter followers for parenting tips. Earlier this month, she looked for breastfeeding advice, revealing that she got emotional thinking about when she would have to stop nursing.
