Pediatrician 's  Response
Check for tenderness over her abdomen and if it is there,you need to get a CT Scan of abdomen done to rule out any intra-abdominal bleed which can be very serious. At least, you must see a Pediatric Surgeon who should look out for other signs of bleed like rising pulse and falling BP. Good luck.

Pediatrician, Neonatology Dr. Uma Rajah Ananth's  Response
As the child has jumped from the swing - not fallen down - the stomach pain may not have any relation to the event.
Tylenol will help in fever and body pain, but not stomach pain
If the pain continues, you must seek medical attention
Good luck
