Yep! Perfectly normal!

My first nursed FOREVER - like 45 mins at a time. OMG, it was like a ball and chain lol.

Then my second - she was a 5 min nurser, MAX. Just very efficient. 10 - 20 mins is pretty middle of the road.

That sounds right. Every baby is different, so some will suck for an hour and then eat again another hour later. Some get efficient very quickly, and can get all the milk they need in very little time. It looks like your little guy is one of the efficient eaters, which is great for you!
