Anyone have or know a baby born to a mother taking methadone?

If so, did they breastfeed? And how long did the baby have to stay in the hospital?

  • I took methadone once before I knew I was pregnant, probably a week after my last period, So he probably wasn't concieved at the time, but anyways. So far my son shows no developmental problems or delays, he was born healthy, without complications and came home when I did. I breastfeed, but don't take methadone, so I don't know if that counts
