Pediatrics/plz guide urgently


"Hello Doctor.
My daughter is 45 days old.  She was given BCG, OPV 0, Hep B at the time of birth.
Hep B2 on 36th day of her life.
Now on 44th day of her life she has been given :
Hib 1 + DTaP 1  in a combination ( Brand - Sii HibPRO and Sanofi Pasteur)and IPV 1 of Brand Sanofi Pasteur.

Please let me know
1) whether Hib 1, DTap 1 and IPV  of these brands are actually painless as told by my Doctor and I have been charged Rs.2000/- for the same.

2) Can I give her Pentaxim for the next two dozes of Hib, DTap and IPV in her 10th and 14th week respectively?

3) I am getting her vaccinated for Rotarix within 2 days (46-47th day of her life)

1.sii and sanofi brand should not be mixed and it may not be equal to pentaxim.
Hep B 2 should have been given alongwith.
2. Though some docs disagree.. I suggest to take pentaxim and rotarix in next session.
