I've never heard of problems from magnesium. Theoretically it can cause diarrhea if taken in too high of quantities, but I've never heard of too much going through breastmilk to baby. I took it routinely with both kids, in order for them to get more (helped with fussiness/sleep later in the afternoon and evening).
It wouldn't be my first guess as to the cause (and if you have RLS and magnesium helps, then it doesn't seem like it would get too high in you), but anything's possible. You could try skipping for a few days (as long as you're not terribly uncomfortable) and then trying it again, or just seeing if a lower dose would work.
