Is it safe to sleep after a bee sting?

My almost 3 year old daughter was stung by a bee. I know that I am allergic, but I am not noticing any reaction in her. I gave her some allergy med and now she would like to take a nap is this safe or should I wait for an hour to see if a sudden reaction occurs?
