My nearly 4 ds1 stood on a bee, though we didn't work this out till a couple of hours later. Twenty minutes later he fell asleep sitting in an uncomfy chair, while eating an apple. Was picked up and moved into his brother's buggy so he wouldn't topple over. Stayed asleep for about 80 minutes.
All highly unusual for him. Woke up and couldn't/wouldn't weight bear on his slightly red and slightly swollen foot for a few hours.
Would appreciate any stories of how your kid's did with their 1st and 2nd stings.
I sat on a bee this week, and it stung me on my bottom. None of the dses have ever been stung by a bee, so they saw nothing wrong in laughing at my misfortune. So did my mum. And my MIL. And pretty much everyone else I told.
never had bee sting for me, or any stings on DS...had 6 wasp stings over 2 wks while pregnant though, so hoping he's immune Anyway, vinegar is a good alternative remedy for wasps, don't know if the same for bees, must neutralise the sting in some way. Not good for head stings though, your hair stinks like a chippy for ages!
My dd (2.6) got stung on her finger, screamed and I pulled out the sting and venom straight away. Put sting cream on. Her finger swelled and went red, a little purple where sting went in, for an evening. the next day she was much better.
