A Nigerian mother, Onyedikachi-Nwalozie Marlene Ijeoma, on Saturday, April 24, narrated the hard task she went through while writing her exams.
Ijeoma revealed that while her postgraduate degree in education exams on Friday, April 23, her baby started crying.
She revealed that after the father had tried so hard to calm the child down with various dance steps, he had to give the baby to the invigilators who brought him to her.
The mother said that people often believe that mothers have some ultimate solution to make babies stop crying.
As a solution to make the child stop disturbing, the woman had to breastfeed the baby and stayed in that position for two hours, throughout the duration she wrote her paper.
The woman said she had to go through the same thing while she was writing her master's exams in 2016, saying she hopes she would not have to do the same thing for her PhD.
