How do I find good airfare for a three-leg journey?

My wife and I will be flying with our daughter for the first time this fall, on a cross-country journey to see grandparents and relatives who haven't met her yet. We'll be traveling from Seattle to Pittsburgh to Minneapolis and back home to Seattle, staying a few days at each stop. The plan is set--now I just need to buy the plane tickets, and I don't know how to go about finding the best deal.

This is the first time I'm buying three seats on the plane, but it's also the first time I've tried to set up a multi-stop trip like this. I know how to look online for deals (or at least the best available price) for round-trip tickets between two points, but I don't know how to go about it for a situation like this. Is buying one-way legs the best way to go, or are there some tricks and options I should know about?
Help me find some affordable plane tickets, so I can go back to worrying about traveling with an infant for the first time!
