Does anyone know how long sub can stay in a baby's blood or urine after mom quits? I am going to try jumping of .5 Mg by 35 weeks and want me and baby to both be clean. My doc knows I'm taking it but I want to avoid NAS and the baby staying in the hospital.

You REALLY need to discuss any tapering with your doctor. This far along in your pregnancy, withdrawals can kill the fetus. I think you may be too far along to avoid NAS, unfortunately, but the person who would know would be your doctor.

DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT taper at all unless your OBGYN says it is okay.

The time sub or any opiate stays in your babies system is the same as it is for us. So yes if you stopped now and made it a few more weeks your baby should be clean from sub and most likely avoid NAS. Your baby is not getting as much sub as you are so your baby is on a lower dose than the .5 you are taking. I do agree that you should talk to your doctor before stopping because withdrawl could cause enough stress to your body that you could go into labor. Congratulations! Soon you will be holding that precious little baby!
