2nd dose of HepA can be given with in 6 to 12 months of first dose(If inactivated vaccine).No need to give 2nd dose if first dose was live vaccine.Ask your paediatrician

Even if u are late it won't make much of a difference in case of second vaccine. It's ok to be late rather than completely missing the dose in my opinion.
You have to start brushing with a soft kiddie brush once your child erupts teeth. You can use any toothpaste meant for kids or the ones your dentist suggests. Be sure to use only a pea sized amount

Hello.... There are two kinds of vaccines ,live attenuated vaccine and killed vaccine, usually killed vaccine is used in schedule, its given in two doses. Don't worry it can be given at anytime for children above 1 year. But hep a vaccine don't give life long immunity. Consult pediatrician in nearest hospital. ......
