Could the excessive sweating in the baby be a symptom of withdrawal?

I am a school psychologist- I just interviewed a parent who reported that her newborn used to sweat a lot at birth and required salt shots. The father was a drug addict. Mother denied that she took drugs. Could the excessive sweating in the baby be a symptom of withdrawal?

Pediatrician 's  Response
excessive seating in a newborn baby is linked to a lot of causes like heart problems , withdrawal from maternal drug abusing but the most common cause is over dressing the baby
if there is concern about withdrawal , careful assessment should be done and usually in the case of withdrawal there will be other symptoms like tremors, excessive crying , high pitched cry , vomiting, diarrhoea , Etc
