Default Aggressive behavior with newborn baby

My newborn is close to 2 weeks old. My 1 year old GSD is super sweet and gentle with the baby. My 4 year old GSD goes crazy when in the same room with him. He tries to root the baby with his nose and barks at him. He goes crazy trying to get to the baby. We've tried having me hold the baby while my sister stands by his side just in case. We've tried my sister holding the baby while I stand by his side. The "introductions" end with him being pulled back and having a wild look in his eye that is difficult to read, that I have only seen when he sees a cat.
Has anyone else experienced this or have any info or tips on how to get him to calm down and accept the new family member?
