Is it safe to use astragalus while breast feeding?

Although Astragalus should not be used in pregnancy, I see no information on contraindications during breastfeeding, and it is recommended for supporting immunity in children. Other antimicrobial herbs that are safe include Echinacea root, Garlic and Shitaki mushroom.
