I try to tell her that it's bad & show her how to be nice but when she gets mad she hits me. I understand she just a baby but do anyone have any suggestions on how i can teach her not to hit

Keep doing what you are doing. She's only 14 months old and isn't able to communicate yet so it's her way of communicating that she's not happy. You can also try ignoring her so if she hits say that's not nice we don't hit, and walk away from her.

I completely know what you mean.

My daughter is just shy of 18 months. Since she was about 15 months she started hitting when she became frustrated.

When I tell her "no" she will actually hit herself on the chest. Or she will throw whatever is in her hands.

I am at a loss too. But I figure being consistent in telling her "No hit, be nice." Will click soon.

Hoping more sooner than later. Have a 3 week old in the house now so it's escalated her frustration.
