You are within manufacturers spec. So you should be fine. Personally I prefer longer at greater distance to minimize chance of UV burns (sun burn). The closer the light the shorter duration you need to run them. At 14 in I would only run for 4 hours.
Also make sure that they can get out of the light if they want or become uncomfortable.
