Say gentle when she is hitting her and grab her hand and stroke the baby softly with it.

Time outs, spankings, taking toys away? Try explaining that she's hurting the baby. Talk to the pediatrician perhaps they can offer some ideas. Also make sure the 16 month old is getting quality time with you it might be a jealousy issue. Maybe play her favorite game with her while lil sis is napping.

I give her more time than the baby so she dont feel like i am playing favorites and so she dont feel like i dont love her anymore she was very spoiled lol and when she hits i make her say sorry and she will kiss the babys boo boo :) I have tried time outs she is a busy body she only sits when she sleeping other than that she is always on the go
