Will the SB-400 make a big difference to my indoor child shots?

Hi,

Recently got the D40 and starting to get to grips with it.

We've just had our first child so it was purchased to get some better shots of him (upgraded from a Fuji S5600)

My problem seems to lie in taking photos indoors with minimal lighting, just room lamps/lights, the shots always tend to be alot more red/orangey than i'd like.

The built in flash obviously helps with this, and it's a big improvement over my old Fuji's flash, but it's still quite harsh and can create horrible shadows/dark backgrounds.

I've been looking at the SB-400 mainly due to its low cost and i wondered how much this would improve my indoor shots? i realise bouncing the flash should make a big difference? does anyone have any examples of photos taken with the d40/sb-400 indoors?

Is there any other tips anyone could give me for taking photos in the kind of environment i've mentioned above?

Thanks in advance!
