My 14 month old started hitting! What can I do to stop this?

Firmly (but gentle enough to not hurt) take his hand and tell him 'no hitting, be gentle' and then you show him gentle by taking his hand and stroking your cheek. If he persists... repeat. If he still persists... walk away from him for a few minutes. Be calm and consistent. He'll learn.

Also the less attention you give his bad behavior and more attention you give his positive behavior, the better. Follow Dove's advice and ignore him safer you correct him, praise like crazy for good, soft touches.
