We are speaking 2 languages with my 1yr old son. I'm not sure if it's good for him or not?

Yes it's really good for him. The best time for children to learn a new language is under the age of 6 and the younger the better.

A lot of people think that it's confusing, and at first they may use both languages in speaking, just because they can't remember a word in one language that they can in another, but eventually they sort everything out.

The best way to for a child to learn multiple languages is to have two people speaking it in the home. Just try not to mix the languages in the same sentence. It can be helpful if one parent (or person in the home) and another parent pick one language, although not necessary.
