Intro help/Aggressiveness

so im introducing my 5 week old Maggie to my adults Noodles and Toodles. im using a large cardboard box to let them roam in.

Toodles is fine with the baby, in fact ive even had them in the main cage with little to no squabbling (without noodles there). its easy to tell that Toodles is quite willing to accept her (even if maggie is annoying while chasing her everywhere biting her tail).

Noodles on the other hand, is the boss. shes having trouble with the baby, and gets very agitated, excited and aggressive when around her. i had an 'incident' today where baby maggie came out with a cut and a bit of bloody fur. i took a lot of spraying with water to get noodles away.
i am having doubts as to whether noodles will accept her, as she has recently been a little more aggressive with her adult cage mate toodles as well.

any suggestions?? i really dont want to have to keep noodles separated from them both. :(

Actually she'll be easier to introduce NOW.

When she's old enough to fight back you'll have a brawl on your hands.
