I fed all of mine to sleep until (on average 2 ish) and then I just laid with them. It's something that takes all of ten minutes and it works for our family. DD is now 8, DS1 is nearly 6 and DS2 just over two and they all sleep really well. Don't worry about the "shoulds" just follow your instincts.

I fed DS1 to sleep (bottle) and he would wake 5-7 times a night.
I nearly went crazy.
I think it's absolutely great that you enjoy the time together and realistically if it's working for you all, I wouldn't worry about it.
My only piece of advice is watch for bottle decay. DS1 ended up with really bad teeth which has given us years of dramas. He had 6 removed at hospital at 1.5/2yrs and multiple fillings done.
Everything else corrects it's self or can be fixed, but that is hard to undo!

I bf DD3 to sleep, she is 11 months. It works, if she wakes at night I bf her back to sleep.., so easy. I'll stop when she wants to, it works for us & I am not worried about what she "should" be doing (according to other people).

I only ask because sometimes DD is full but tired and then goes nuts cos she doesn't want to feed and then can't sleep and that's not fair on her. The paci has limited success.

If he is sleeping well and it doesn't bother you, go with it. I don't regularly feed to sleep as ds will then wake a million times that night, so go with it while you are both happy and it's working.
I can only imagine how you feel leaving him to work fulltime. I only work two days a week and when I get home I just want to cuddle and kiss him for hours (he promptly pushes me away though when he has had enough )

I started a very similar thread a month or too back when I started nursing dd to sleep at 9 months too. Now at almost 12 months, I don't need to do it anymore, babies go through a sleep regression at 8-10 months, it was just a phase and feeding to sleep helped greatly. Didn't need to retrain dd I just tried putting her down without it and she was fine.
Go with it it'll make this phase much easier
