My Daughter does the whole grabbing thing too when I am changing her.  My best advise that seems to work (I am also a first time Mom) is that I give her two small toys to hold so her hands are busy OR a slippy cup.  This seems to distract her enough to get the job done. 

As for the timeout/no thing.  My daughter is just 9 months old so she is just learning no but the one thing that seems to work (which is completely annoying) is consistancy.  It may take 100 times but at least she knows that I am saying the same thing and it means the same thing.

Hi I am new too.

My son is 5 years old. I went through the same thing with him. The biting thing. Brandon only diid it once and I spanked him. He acted like he was going to again but I realized that at two he was sitll teething. I dont think a little tap on the rear would hurt, It would let him know that you mean NO. SPARE THE ROD SPOIL THE CHILD. Just dont take it overboard. Time out we do too. We make him stand beside the wall, with his face tword the wall, no more than his age in minutes so if your son is 1 make him sit there for 1 minute. If he does not sit there then restart time and sit him down again. Consistancy,(agree with the other mom.) Sleep, I am weak when it comes to that lol I just let him get in the bed with me. I even would lay down with him at nap time. oh and main thing dont talk to him while he is in time out. afterwards give him a hug and tell him no means no.

IN GOD WE TRUST!!!
