I agree with the others, she is only two. As long as she is responding to her own name you shouldnt worry. And as for calling all other children "baby" my daughter does that too. she is 22 months. They connect that you call them a baby and you are not, but the other child is not as big as you so they assume that they are also babies. Its normal.

I agree with JuLeah. She's still learning and she'll figure it out. In the meantime, have your oldest ONLY answer her younger sister when refered to as sissy or her proper name. After being ignored time after time the younger one will get it. :)
