What are the advantages and disadvantages of co-sleeping?

Advantages of co-sleeping include: reduced anxiety levels for baby and parent; quicker access to baby, so that soothing or feeding can be done while the baby is still stirring and has not completely woken up, and; less need for 'fuss' (entering the child's room, turning on a light, making noise, etc.) when baby wakes. The main disadvantages of co-sleeping are safety concerns and, for some parents, discomfort and sleep disturbance when sharing a sleeping space with a baby.
