Why or why not to spank the baby

I personally believe that a baby cannot learn anything from you spanking them, they are still learning about their world and under about age 1 or even under age 2, I feel they have little concept of consequence and I feel positive redirection will teach them better ways to learn to do the right things.

I feel if you spank a baby, they will start to be aggressive, mean and hit you bite you etc as that is their only way to show you they are made at you. Spanking in general I feel teaches a child we hit people when they are not doing what they should, but specifically a baby age? I think that can be extremely confusing and more emotionally hurtful under age 2 and will not teach anything.
