I fed my DD to sleep until almost 20months (despite all of the *rod for your own back* comments). She weaned suddenly and I would just pat her to sleep. No problems.

Ds1 was given a bottle before his big sleep and even for naps when he was baby till toddler. Is this what you call feed to sleep? I don't see any problem with baby having a filled tummy and going to sleep happily like that. He stopped doing that once we started giving milk in a cup. I can't even remember any problem to this habit. You can call it a habit or association or even part of a routine, it doesn't matter. I think it's fine.
But with feeding to sleep by the boob, yes there's a problem cos it makes the mum indispensable. We see this and so I can feed DS2 to sleep but DH can only use the dummy.
