what to do if baby gets stung by a wasp or bee??


we came close today! Soooo scary. I had hung some bibs outside to dry and got them all in and put the in the bag on the door like i usually do. Hubby came in and picked her up and i said i need to change her bib as shes been dribbling lots, so took a bib out of the bag and put it on her. Next thing i know hubbys yelling ow ow ow so i run in and grab baby from him and he tells me he's been stunk and the sting was still in him!! The wasp was crawing around the floor so he squashed it quick. Obviously it had been hiding in the bib, it could have stung my baby So it made me realise i wouldnt know what to do if she did get stung, would i take her straight to A&E?

When we were kids my mum always said it was lemon juice for wasps and onions for bees - don't know how medically effective those are considered but it seemed to work for us!

For the bee sting you have to carefully remove the stinger first and then wash it (prefereably with something antibacterial I think) and then hold an onion to it.

That's a good link. I'm lucky to have lived a long life and never been stung by anything yet, so I'd probably have googled what to do if it happened to my baby.

I would personally be bringing Alessa to hospital but only because severe wasp allergies run in her dads side of the family. That would be so scary! Glad she didnt get stung..

wasps don't leave stingers though so if it was a wasp you don't have to worry about getting the stinger out. That is only bee's
