In brief: Depends

It does vary from baby to baby and how severe their symptoms are.
It also is going to depend on what your dose was, maternal compliance (if you used other drugs while preg). Generally speaking, symptoms appear 12-24 hrs, peak at 72-96 hrs and can last for average of 7 days. Some babies take significantly longer, but in most cases there is a reason for that (maternal noncompliance)
