My daughter's bottles are never propped, and she doesn't hold her own bottles. She sits in my lap for every feeding. She is "bottle nursed". It's been an amazing bonding experience that I'm reluctant to give up on, now that she's 10 mos old and nearing the one year mark (when we are advised to wean them from the bottle).
I'm really reluctant to wean her by age one. Most of the problems associated with bottles are due to babies going to bed with them, which allows the milk to saturate the teeth and cause rot. Or it's because the baby walks around with the bottle, taking nips from it all day, filling them up with milk/juice.
Any advice or words of encouragement? It makes me sad to think about NOT bottle nursing anymore!! :(

I'm sure you'll enjoy your child talking to you to replace the "bottle nursing".
