Rocking baby to bed with a bottle

Help?! My DD is almost one year old. We have always rocked her to sleep with a bottle. The rocking part is not what is givinge problems because I enjoy it. But a friend of mine gave me crap because I rock her to bed WITH A BOTTLE and don't let her fall asleep on her own with out one. She says its bad for her teeth and can cause tooth decay and such. I thought that was only if she is laying on her back?! She's propped up when I feed here.

Any and all advice welcome but please no bashing :)

it can still rot out her teeth. i would try to get rid of the bottle altogether but if that wont work for you i'd at least put lukewarm water in the bottle or try switching to a pacifier.
