I keep running in to written material that say co-sleeping is not safe. I want to be able to argue against that with some science rather than the adrenalin that surges through me at the time. I just feel angry at the knee-jerk belief that co-sleeping is not safe.
Anyone have some good references that are "pro" co-sleeping?

British Medical Journal:

Also the following link contains two pages full of studies and highlights:
I think this article is cool http://www.askdrsears.com/topics/sleep-problems/co-sleeping-yes-no-sometimes especially the section under the heading "our experiments" not a scientific study, since they only "experimented" with their own baby, but the results are still interesting!
