I know this is an old topic but, for those that are afraid to co-sleep or aren't comfortable with sleeping while a baby is in their bed, you can try doing some of these things but, not full time co-sleeping.
I had my daughter in our room for the first 5 mos(basically she was sleeping through the night and nursing after 8 hours of sleep) I would put her down in the pack n play so she started off in her own bed. I also wanted her sleep trained and to get used to being by herself. When she would wake to eat, she came in my bed and nursed side by side. I often would fall asleep and she would sleep next to me for awhile. I would sometimes switch her if she was still hungry, or if she was really out and I woke up, she would go back in her bed. She usually went right to sleep if it was early after getting her diaper changed and her tummy full.
