Question:

Is there a halachic or other problem with nursing a crying baby right after relations?
Thank you, yashar kochachem and tizku lmitzvos

Answer:

The poskim say that for kabala reasons after relations, that a woman should not nurse until 36 minutes afterwards, but if the child is crying that she can nurse after 18 minutes. There is an opinion that if the child can’t be calmed down any other way, that it is permitted earlier.
