I personally feel it's wrong. How the heck is a baby going to understand why you're hitting them? We use gentle discipline techniques (you can Google it and read more about it) in our home and they work very well with our 18 month old son. I've never spanked him and don't ever plan to! He's very well behaved and very loving!

Good advice Claudia, that's what I would certainly do. If he still carries on though if you feel you need to you could just put him at the other end of the room for a minute, they will wander back very quickly but just the act of putting them away from you is usually enough to teach them you are not happy with there actions.

I just checked your profile and it says your baby is 11 months old, so yeah it definitely wrong to spank him. I don't think an 11 month old should be punished at all. At that age they don't really understand that they are being naughty. When he is doing something that he shouldn't, redirect him or tell him no in a firm voice.
