I would reccomend talking to your vet about medical treatments to soothe your kitties’ nerves. Just like humans, cats can get stressed about things that don’t seem to actually be causing harm. You might want to look into something like Feliway, which is a pheremone/scent dispenser that makes kitties feel more secure by imitating their “safe” smells. There’s a plug-in diffuser kind, and a spray bottle kid. If that doesn’t help enough, your vet might reccommend putting them on antianxiety medication (Xanex or Valium, usually!), but they will probably want you to try some other options first. Feliway and anxiety medication would help with the aggression and marking, though.

I’m not a cat behaviourist, and I’ve never dealt with introducing a pet to a baby, so I’ll just hope someone else can give you some behaviour training methods.
