NAS

What is Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome?

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) refers to symptoms of withdrawal that babies may have if their mothers used or abused substances during pregnancy. Signs of withdrawal most commonly are a result of opiate exposure such as Heroin, Codeine, Oxycodone (Oxycontin), Methadone or Buprenorphine. Symptoms of withdrawal may present as early as 24-48 hours after birth, or as late as 10 days of age.

Treatment

What kind of treatment will my baby need?

Providing comfort measures is always the first treatment for NAS. Comfort measures include:
• Hold your baby skin to skin
• Swaddle in a blanket - hands to face and knees to chest
• Breastfeeding • Small frequent feedings
• Warming feedings • Sucking on a pacifier
• Low light, low noise • Slow vertical rocking
• Shushing sound- mimics mother’s heartbeat
• Deep breathe- helps calm baby and caregiver
