Cosleeping is done by many parents :) It's perfectly fine.

That being said, there are definitely circumstances that make it a bad idea, such as if you smoke, are drinking or doing any kind of drugs, are a deep sleeper, or have any situation where it would be difficult for you to wake up.
Don't use a soft mattress or fluffy blankets or pillows.
Make sure baby roll into a crack between the bed and wall and get stuck.
If you are obese, it's advised that you don't cosleep.
If you have long hair, it's advised to keep it tied back if you cosleep, because it can get tangled around babies neck.

Cosleeping is a person choice. It can absolutely be done safely, but there are circumstances that can make it unsafe. You need to decide for yourself, and do your research on how to make it as safe as possible.
