    Lactation Clinic:

    We simply don't know much at all about this antiviral drug. Its not used in the USA. Has a 2 hour half life, and is well absorbed orally. It is Teratogenic during pregnancy.
    Since this damages DNA during synthesis and a lot of this is going on in a newborn, I'd worry about using this drug in a breastfed infant.
