Should you nurse your baby to sleep

I nurse my baby until she falls asleep, after she doses off I put her against my chest, head by my shoulder, this helps to get any gas bubble out. Then I lay her down in bassinet or crib. Breast feeding soothes and relaxes her. She sleeps longer too. She takes an hour nap 3 times a day and sleeps almost throughout the night. Usually a wet diaper wakes her up and I breast feed her back to sleep.
I get so frustrated when people tell other mamas that nursing your baby to sleep is a bad habit & they should stop. Enjoy your peaceful Bonding moment. It's your baby your choice do what works best for you and your baby though.

During the winter it got real cold so I let her sleep in my arms a few times or in the bassinet next to the bed.

    I see no problem with that. If the baby is willing to nurse. I used to do it all the time. It's hard getting them to sleep on there own at that age
