Re: co-sleeping articles...

Um, it doesn't? Cosleeping isn't protective against SIDS. Breastfeeding is protective against SIDS and often correlates with cosleeping. If you're concern is SIDS, the best way to lower the risk is to room-share and breastfeed, but not bed-share. The AAP policy statement of SIDS (updated Oct 2011) has all the studies on SIDS you'd want to look at.
