Sounds normal. You discipline like you would with anything else!
If he hit because he wants something, you refuse or take it away.
If he hits just because, first time, take his hands and tell him that hands aren't for hitting.
Second time, he's old enough for timeout.

This is what I have been doing with my 20 month old. I am starting to see results, I know being consistant will definitely help in the long run so I am trying to stick to this. Good luck!

They begin to. Timeout is more about action and reaction. You do something not good, you can't play.
Be consistant. At that age, one or two times won't do it but if you keep it up, they make the connection and it sinks in. :)
