This is not the appropriate age and your child need not rotavirus vaccine at this stage. Please follow the link for detail information- http://drhaque4happykids.com/category/article/

** Exclusively breastfeed your baby up to six months. **Continue breast feeding up to two years. ** Nothing is substitute for or equivalent or superior to breast milk. ** Feeding bottle is the source of infection, use cup and spoon. **Start weaning food at six months of age. ** Home made food is the best food for weaning. ** Vaccinate your child. ** During diarrhoea treat your baby with saline (ORS) and zinc in addition to breast milk. ** Do not restrict usual food during diarrhoea. ** Random use of antibiotics in diarrhoea is harmful. ** Do not receive treatment for your baby through telephone. ** Donate blood and save life of a child. ** Do not give your child junk food. ** Chocolate, icecream reduce your child's appetite. ** Give your child adequate protein diet during chicken pox. ** Do not restrict food during illness. ** Wash hands with soap before you touch your newborn. ** Do not kiss your newborn's face. ** Do not hug your baby immediately after coming from outside. ** Do not give your kids sharp and small toys.
