my 4 year old came up behind her and stood her up, my 11 month old gets super excited when she's standing and starts "hopping". she does this when we pick her up off the ground too, kicks her legs excitedly. but my 4 year old wasn't expecting her to hop and she hopped right out of her grip, falling lip first onto the kitchen chair. she cried about it for a second (the girl is tough as nails) but it bled profusely and instantly swelled. thankfully she didn't lose any teeth, all 8 of them are still intact. but today, she's left with a huge blister-like bump on her lip, there's blood behind it and it's peeling at 2 ends.
is there anything i can do to try and reduce the swelling? i feel bad that the poor girl's first Christmas pictures are going to reveal her huge lip in them LOL. poor thing :( i iced it right after but she doesn't want to sit and let me hold the ice on it. she's constantly on the go...

It's too late now. Ice right away was the best thing.
