Is it ok to let baby stay latched if they are not actively nursing?

I did. I nursed on demand. And for comfort. I didnt want to give a pacifier. So i was the pacifier

Yes! Comfort nursing is just as much of a biological need.

I let my baby girl stay latched all through the night and for naps she loves it and she usually unlatches when she falls in a deep sleep.

Yes. Even that is stimulating your supply, and your baby's mouth on the nipple tells your body what antibodies to make that will be delivered to your baby through your milk.

Yes. This is known as non-nutritive suckling and is VERY desirable.
