For all of human history babies have slept with their mothers and nurse at night. They still do in most of the world. It's normal for children to wake at night until they are 3. After my first I just conted on my children waking at night until they were 3.
Sometimes you can lay a baby down once they get in deep sleep. This is usually about 20 min. after they have fallen asleep at the breast. Dr. William Sears talks about this in his books. You might try reading his books for support and tips. Your baby is not stubborn. Breastfed babies are not supposed to be able to suck on artificial nipples.
Breastfed babies that won't drink from a sippy cup will sometimes drink with a straw.
