Best lighting for infant photos?

Hey guys, I really appreciate any help here.

My wife and I just had our first son this week. I've been trying to take photos of him, but the lighting in our living room is terrible. I've been looking at lighting options, but I'm really lost. I realize I probably need one or two softboxes, but I'm lost on where to go from there. I'm eventually planning on doing some newborn photography for her friends once I get the hang of it, so it won't be one-time use stuff.

Could someone give me both a less expensive and a slightly more expensive set of options they'd suggest?

Thanks so much!
