Thanks for writing to us.
If you were a suboxone addict, then your baby after birth will show a withdrawal reaction as suboxone is also an opioid derivative and has an addiction potential. Babies usually show screaming and excessive crying as they are not mature enough to show any reaction to the withdrawal. After the treatment he should behave normally like any other child of his age.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
