I think what GEL and I were reading is that the red marks stayed long enough to be seen much later by the doctors, not just the grandma. It takes some considerable force to leave marks like that. I can try it now on the skin of my wrist. I can smack it and there, I've produced sufficient force to make it sting quite a bit. There is a slight mark...and there it goes, faded out of sight already. That is how hard a spanking of a two year old should be. That is plenty sufficient to get their attention, divert them from their meltdown, and get the point across that mom is mighty displeased.

I understand where you are coming from, however even the most normal or strikes on a fleshy area will cause reddening. You can do it on yourself easily.
This is not abuse, but a physiological reaction.
I understand you were beaten severely as a child with foreign objects, paddles belts etc.
When it bruises it is too far, but honestly reddening will happen anyway.
Is circumcision less painful for a baby than for an adult?
Infants experience excruciating pain during circumcision and for weeks afterwards, and they can show behavioural changes such as frequent crying, avoidance of physical contact, reduced feeding, and sleep disturbance. Local anaesthetic creams such as EMLA are not adequate, and a general anaesthetic poses a significant risk for infants under the age of six months. Adult circumcision is less painful as men can undergo general anaesthesia and receive pain relief during the post-operative period.
