Is it normal for a 14 month old baby to react scared by flinching as if you are going to hit them?

I would definitely be concerned because that is not a behavior we are born with. That is learned. If you are not spanking your child as a form of discpline then I would look into who may be using that form of discpline on your child without your permission. Go with your gut instincts. Something may be wrong. I am not trying to scare you or make you nervous but you need to pay attention to the signs your child is giving you and what your child is doing is not normal unless they have been subjected to some kind of physical discpline.
