You should not feel like a terrible mom. You did exactly what every reasonable mom might do.
based on my personal experience (mom for 3 kids and a baby), I wait 24 hours to see if something develop and then I take them to see their pediatrician. At first I give them Tylenol and check if there are other symptoms and if there are than I take them to see a doctor.
Keep that in your mind you are a wonderful mom !!!!!!
