How to Stop Mommy-Hitting Toddler

Question

Hi there, my 22 month old likes to slap/hit me when he's upset. At home I've started using timeout, which helps. What do I do when I do when he does it in public? I've read Making the Terrible Two's Terrific and have tried speaking to him beforehand of not hitting. I'm just not sure on what to do when he starts slapping me in public. I try holding his arms down, in which he starts head-butting me. Thank you!
