Oh, please do not do 'no baby' time... unless you think it's a good idea to indicate to your daughter that in your opinion your son is disposable, in the way and it is not possible to love more than one person at a time.
Eye contact. You can watch her eyes while she's busy doing whatever it is she's doing, so that when she looks up she sees you watching her. You don't have to smile or say anything --just watching her eyes so that very often when she looks up, you're looking at her.
Your daughter needs your attention continuously, not once a week, for the same reason you can't feed her on Saturdays only. Mommy-girl time can't make up for all the attention she's lacking the rest of the day anymore than being sat in front of a huge buffet for 20 minutes can make up for no food since the same time yesterday.
Hug her lots, especially with the baby in your arms. Bathe with them both. She hasn't stopped needing physical affection.
