How to approach neighbors with newborn?

Upstairs neighbors just had a baby. Good for them! Bad for me! I rent a 1BR co-op in an old building, and sound leaking can be an issue. It hasn't been enough to become an issue until now. I really don't want to make their lives any more difficult than I'm sure it is when dealing with a newborn, but I can't sleep on my couch everynight. Any suggestions for how to tactfully approach them and have a productive conversation? I don't really know them except for chit chat in the elevator, so this will be a cold call. Additionally does anyone have any sound tips/tricks? I've been putting on my tornado fan, which helps somewhat but doesn't completely block out the noise.
