Methadone babies?

Samantha - posted on 03/19/2016 ( no moms have responded yet )




My baby is two months old still in the nicu, i was on 80 mil of methadone when he was born. He was put on morphine, clonodine, and phenobarbital. He has been off the morphine for 4 days now and still shows signs of withdrawal. Any parents go through this with their baby? They are trying to wean him off of the other meds, he seems to be very sensitive to medications, it has taken him two months to get off of morphine, he went up to .9 less then a whole mil. Any moms had a long stay in the nicu? Just when i feel like we are getting there he has a real rough time coping without the meds? Its so depressing. I would never eput another baby through this, i just hope there is so light at the end of the tunnel :(
