15-month-old hitter

Question

My 15-month-old has started hitting. Not out of anger or frustration, just because. He'll walk up and bop me in the face, then stand there. Sometimes he'll do it a second time.

I've been taking his hand and saying, "NO." Then I promptly stop playing with him or just get up and move somewhere else (I'm pregnant with morning sickness, so usually I'm lying on the couch when this happens).

Is that the appropriate response? Do I just have to wait this phase out?
