Sounds like she wanted her kid to be the main focus

I guess in a way it could, because PPD doesn't always manifest towards the baby, but it seems like other issues really. She may have had more of a "momma bear" mentality and just felt like she should be focusing on her new baby.

Think its possible those could be signs of PPD but its more likely that she was just upset having to deal with the added stress of two children when she was trying to care for and enjoy time with her newborn. I'm sure she wanted all focus to be on her new baby since its her first and maybe she's subconsciously taking it out on the kids. (or consciously but you said it wasnt intentional so i will give her the benefit of the doubt)
