Re: how do/did you discipline 18 mo. for hitting?

I'm having this problem with my 14 month old DD also. She hits me and DH when we tell her no. I've been telling her in a stern voice that hitting isn't nice, that she needs to be nice (which she understands perfectly well because she "pets" you when she's being "nice") but she still hits us a LOT! I'll move her away from me to try to show her that I won't accept that kind of behavior, like put her down off my lap onto the floor. What else can I do?
This is all so new to me because I can count on one hand how many times I've had to discipline my older DD in her 12 years!
I'm hoping it's just a phase, please tell me it's just a phase!
