Wating Before Nursing

Does a nursing mother need to wait to nurse her baby after marital relations?

Answer:

The Magen Avraham mentions, citing from the Zohar, that a nursing mother should preferably wait 18-36 minutes after marital relations before nursing.

He adds that if the baby wants to eat (and will experience discomfort in waiting), it is fine to feed him right away.
