Youngest will hit when he doesn't want his nappy changed or doesn't wasn't to go out or be put in his buggy or car seat

Car seat or buggy - you kind of fold up the child, apply elbow/forearm to contain whilst you are doing the clip. Tanya Byron showed us how a decade ago <my hero>

Develop your Rugby Swerve to avoid contact from a flail.

Along with a ferocious scowl of course.

Catch the arm before he hits you, telling him calmly you cannot allow this. This way he gets the message that it is wrong without having to do the "crime" first.

Just say "no, we do not hit" calmly but firmly every time. You can physically hold his arm to stop him hitting you but try to remain unfazed by it its just a phase it will pass. Good luck.
