I have decided to use Dr Sears Vaccination schedule with our little one, but she was already given the Hep B at birth. How long can we wait for the 2nd and 3rd dose and would we have to start the series over if we waited for a year? anyone knows?

Many thanks.

You can wait as long as you want between vaccine doses.

 

According to the CDC, "A vaccine series does not need to be restarted, regardless of the time that has elapsed between doses."

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/schedules/downloads/child/catchup-schedule-pr.pdf (top of page) The intervals on the catch-up schedule are the minimum intervals. There are no maximum intervals between doses.
