Sadly hun I have had same sort of prob and once I did the ultimate no-no and bit my son back. It didn't work by the way but I wouldn't rec. it.
Eventually mine have stopped but I cant say I've done anything different to what you're doing now.
Over time with persistant firm no's and ignoring it has stopped. Hope it does for you x good luck,they're testing times I know! x

Mine the same,all you can do is always say no.Matilda's always kicking a change time,she thinks it's funny,I don't.I just get it done and hold her feet as best I can.
With the slapping I'd just say no,not nice,and walk away if you can or turn him away/put him down,showing him you don't like it.When he's nice play again.
It does stop,so long as you're consistant and as long as there's no aunt/uncle/grandparent/sibling/whoever playing games that make your LO think it's funny.Does happen,believe it or not

i think its comes down to embarrassment on their behalf. Ours always started it when they started getting self conscious about filling their nappy in front of others. try the softly softly catch ya monkey method. we tried changing them in the bathroom and telling them not to worry about others in the room and that they used to have "poo poos" in their nappy. that worked for belle, ayesha just had to be told no, she does not believe in reason
