    experiences with baby vaccination

    One of the pediatrician has suggested that the forth month shots be taken separately with 2 weeks break in between. (Including the rotavirus oral medication. ) This means five in one shot, followed by two week break, then the pneumo shot, two week break and finally rotavirus. Is this something new or only certain peds practise?

    It is pretty common in the US. Ultimately it is a choice for the patient and doctor to make together. Did your ped tell you why s/he recommended this schedule for your child?
