Co-sleeping doesn't harm a baby at all. My first born was a very lively baby, both " inside " and out and took a bit of settling so the only way to solve a decent nights sleep all round was to have her in bed with us. Easier because I fed her myself. However next morning she wasn't in the middle but at just over 6 weeks had squirmed down to the foot of the bed. Her lungs were like bellows, believe me !
Expecting to find her lifeless under the clothes, she was wide awake and rearing to go again. Remarkable when you hear of so many babies suffocating ! I always remember this incident, with horror at times.
What's more my babies always slept on their sides never on their backs as any choking etc would be easier to remedy by being on their sides rather than on their backs.
No harm ever came to the children. Second baby wasn't a wriggler so was quite happy in her cot once settled.
