I think my daughter might hate me?

My daughter is 16 months old and has always been a mommy's girl. Her father and I broke up shortly after we found out I was pregnant with her and he saw her three days a week up until he moved away from the bad people and place he was living and got a new house and now he has her twice a week for 4-5 hours and then overnight on saturdays.

I also have a one month old with my (now) husband who has been in my daughters life for quite some time now too. I have tried to get my daughter involved with the baby but she hurts him! She will hit him in his face or try to pull him out of his carseat. I want her to be a part but I don't want the baby to be caught in the middle of her jealousy. I do spend time with her. I put the baby down and play in her room and act silly and all day long its just me and her and the baby but with him being a month old he sleeps a lot.

Today was the second day shes been to her dads and the second time that shes stood at the door and cried after him. I mean SCREAM crying with real tears. When I try to console her she pushes me away and it makes me feel HORRIBLE. I feel like she hates me and that she would rather go stay with him.

What should I do???
