Thanks for writing to us.
The baby if he is breast feeding is most likely to be addicted to meth as well. You need to properly get him treated as sudden weaning from meth might cause a strong withdrawal syndrome. IF there is no breast feeding and baby is on top feed then there is nothing to worry.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
