How do you set up a baby swing?

Can a newborn go in a pool?
Babies can go into water from birth. However, they can’t regulate their temperature like adults, so it’s very important to make sure they don’t get too cold. Babies can also pick up an infection from water. Therefore, it’s generally best to wait until your baby is around 2 months old before you take them swimming.
Is it safe to let a baby sleep in a swing?

Can I put my newborn in a swing?
