If you do not leave him, you are contributing to her abuse. If you care for your child at all, you will keep her away from this man.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
|1 - Get Calm
First, if you feel angry and out of control and you want to spank or slap your child, leave the situation if you can. Calm down and get quiet. In that quiet time you will often find an alternative or solution to the problem. Sometimes parents lose it because they are under a lot of stress. Dinner is boiling over, the kids are fighting, the phone is ringing and your child drops the can of peas and you lose it. If you can't leave the situation, then mentally step back and count to ten.
2 - Take Time for Yourself
Parents are more prone to use spanking when they haven't had any time to themselves and they feel depleted and hurried. So, it is important for parents to take some time for themselves to exercise, read, take a walk or pray.
I would remove myself and my child from the household immediately. After getting to a safe place I would find a good divorce lawyer.
Spanking an infant is NEVER ok or excusable, period.
ETA. I would also take pictures of any marks that were left if they would be need for divorce proceedings or a future CPS case.
