How long does it take them in an average nursing session to finish? When do they nurse the longest? How about shortest?

1 minute to 1 hour, LOL. She likes to marathon nurse in the mornings. Some mornings in bed, she will nurse for a couple hours, I cannot get her off to save my life!

Shortest just a latch, longest probably 10-20 mins. They got a lot shorter at one point but are getting longer again.

Thuya always has a long session. Min is 15 mins and max is 30 (my limit). When he wakes in the morning he really goes for it.

Lurking, since Ashlynn isn't quite a year..
She usually takes about 3-7 minutes.. Longest is at night if I let her nurse back to sleep when she wakes up.. She'll stay on until she falls asleep 100%, so occasionally I let her stay on and it can go on for nearly 30 minutes.
Shortest is about 3 minutes.

They usually last about 10 minutes, I've been taking her off when she bites, so they've been getting a little shorter. If she nurses to sleep she's usually on between 15 to 30 minutes.

The shortest is 5-10 min and the longest is an hour'ish. She's wanting to nurse more when I'm home and on the days I don't work. If anything, it's increasing. Fortunately she self-nightweaned at 14 months but during the day it's game-on!
