I adore nursing to sleep. As in absolutely love it!!! I cried when I weaned the older two and had to find new ways to put my girls to sleep. I've always found it to be the most efficient way of calming babies.
I wouldn't recommend you try to change anything before 12wks because of the 4th trimester stuff.

OP I fed all mine to sleep basically until it stopped working so anywhere between 12 and 24 weeks. But I get that not everyone likes that and if you don't then try putting him down a little more awake then settling with a dummy, swaddling, shushing or lying the baby on its side
Have you read Harvey Carp's book happiest baby on the block? It was a lifesaver for us with DD1.

I don't have any suggestions for other methods but my DD2 outgrew being fed to sleep when she weaned. Prior to that we tried anything else to get her to sleep & failed miserably! I weaned her at 13 months as I was away for the weekend and since then she has slept through the night and now we just pat her to sleep, takes her 5 minutes usually but if she gets over tired it's a bit longer. I know it can feel claustrophobic but once she weans you may find it easier (at least it has been in my experience). She wouldn't have a bar of formula or a bottle/dummy in general, so I had to keep BFing her, so I'm not sure whether it was just weaning that helped or if it was combined with her age.
Good luck OP

Feeding to sleep
I get the sids guidelines exist for very good reasons by the way. It's just no matter what we did once they were unwrapped they all flipped to their tummies.
