Up until my son was about 6 months old he still woke for a feed at about 5 or 6 am. He usually went to bed around 8pm. Sometimes if he woke during the night I would send my husband down to resettle him as Liam knew that if he played up long enough with me I would eventually give in and feed him, but dad wouldn't. I also tried giving him bottled water, but it didn't work, in the hope that he would realise that it wasn't worth waking up.
He then started sleeping 10-12hours, but since his teeth have cut through he wakes at about 5 anf I give him some teething gel and his dummy and he drops straight back off to sleep.
You sound like you're doing a great job with your son and parenting is all trial and error. What works for one doesn't work for others and usually when you think you've got things sussed, the little buggers change on you.
You could also try putting the bassinette in his room so he adjusts to his room first, we also did everything in there, clothed and changed bum, so he was used to his room from the day we got home.
