Personal opinion- I think he is jealous . He knows he now has to share mommy and daddy with another baby. To him it's a new toy that has your attention. Set aside time for just mommy and him time and daddy and him time. Also, everytime he does something to hurt the baby, get on his level and and tell him he is "not being nice" and redirect his attention somewhere else. He will learn that his actions get a NEGATIVE response from you and hopefully he will stop doing it.
