Big sissy (almost 2) hit her little sister (1 month) today. What are some things to do to teach her that she can't hit her sister?

i have a 3 yr old girl and a 11 month old girl. i had problems with this alot! once the baby got about a month old she started it, she would bite her fingers and toes when we werent looking, esp in the carseat in the car. she would squeeze her hand and would grab her hard on the arm sometimes or pinch her...sometimes smack her was always her hands and feet or arms! at first we would put her in time out then we tried spankings but what finally worked was doing what she did to her sister to her! and we would do it just enough to hurt her so she would know how it feels, she finally quit when she got about 6 monhs old...i guess that was just her way of showing jealousy...good luck...and i learnt quickly never leave them in a room alone together... lol!
