How can I get my newborn to stay asleep?

We're using all the advice from the Happiest Baby on the Block to get Little Stardust to fall asleep.

Earplugs/muffs to block out a crying baby

In the next two weeks, there will be a new addition to our household -- a baby. (Not mine.) And since it's not mine, I would prefer not to hear it. There are lots of AskMes about earplugs, but many (like the ETY ones) use as a selling point that they don't muffle speech. I want to muffle everything. Best ear protection for the job, <$30?

Help me get my baby to sleep

We have a 3 week old son. He's in good health and is pretty even tempered but sometimes he doesn't seem to sleep well. If he's in my lap, or lying on my chest, or whatever, he sleeps like, well, a baby. Same goes for my wife. Any techniques to get him to sleep by himself? [more inside]
