The thing that REALLY helped us with getting our first to sleep well is a book that my cousins told me about. It's called:
Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth, MD.
I'm reading it again as we have an 11 day old. He goes into lots of detail on what type of sleep children need at different ages and ways to help them get plenty of good sleep (and you too as a result!). We had our daughter sleeping 5-6 hours a night by 2 months old, and 8-11 hours by 3 months old with the help of this book.
One of the big tips to try is putting the baby to sleep earlier (before you start seeing the sleepy signs). A baby that's not overtired when trying to go to sleep (or back to sleep when they wake up), will sleep more soundly and for longer!
