Studies have shown that babies born  by  mothers addicted to Methadone , may experience some issues as  consequence from the  methadone. The most common are smaller head size, low birth weight, and withdrawal symptoms that varies in severity. The majority of these babies will  develop  in the normal range and size throughout childhood.
