Both cats are spayed, right? If not, this needs to be done. I just suggested to another poster here that maybe there's a stray cat outside that her cats see. Since the cats can't get at the outside cat, they will attack whoever is handy inside. It's also possible that one of your cats isn't feeling well, so at least a call to the vet is in order since this is a sudden change in behavior. For the time being, you might want to separate the 2 of them if you didn't when you brought the baby home. Fraidy sounds like she's being very territorial and needs reassurance that you still love her. This is a situation that takes time, patience and kindness and a little advice from the vet. Good luck!
