Our expert says:
It sounds as if your eldest is feeling a bit pushed out by the new arrival, and at 8 months he is a bit young to take it out on, so unfortunately your daughter is in the firing line.
I would suggest speaking to your son about how he feels about the new baby. It is often expected of siblings to be happy about a new sibling, but this is often far from the case. Let him know he is loved just as much now as he ever was and nothing will change that. It is also worth letting him know that his sister is hurt by his actions and he needs to think about improving things with her.
