Hi, I would say yes once it's ok with you and your LO that's all that matters. In my experience all babies are unique and have different needs. My ds was a 'text book' baby as in with no effort on my side he slept 'through' from an early age and was excl bf til 6mths and bf til 13mths. My dd started off the same and at 4mths point blank refused to stay in her cot at all! We went with the flow and since she has co-slept and still is at 15mths.(and still bf) We don't mind, for whatever reason she needs the extra security of being with her mum and when she has a feed at night I hardly wake so it's perfectly fine. Life is too short and they grow up too quickly so relax and enjoy!!
Absolutely it's ok. As long as you are feeling comfortable with it............
DD is 14 months as well and nurses once at night.

My DD2 is almost 18 months and nurses a few times in the night - depending on the night. Like the others said... if it works for you then it is great.
People do not understand that most nights this actually allows me to get the maximum amount of sleep because she nurses and goes back to sleep right away. She will settle down very quickly instead of getting really worked up. Some nights I don't even remember if I nursed her, how many times or when...
Only in the last few months have me and DH talked about doing some type of night weaning (plus some good ideas from the forums) to try to help her sleep longer stretchs because some nights she wakes up every 2 hours (that makes a really tired mommy!) She usually starts out in her crib and ends up in bed with me.
