No, you can’t because Rotterdam is a city in the Netherlands.

All info about how long it takes by train can be found on the official website of the Belgian train company;

103 km. How exactly does that help you?!

By train, it takes 32 mins by high-speed Thalys and about 1h05 by normal IC(D) trains, either direct or with a change in Breda.

Thanks for your reply. Not going Rotterdam anymore, to Amsterdam instead which costs €21 one way (check price from SNCB INTERNATIONAL). Will visit beautiful Giethoorn as day trip from Antwerp, then back to Brussels, by train...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

A day trip to Giethoorn from Antwerp?! Did you even check how long it will take to get there? From Antwerp you will first need to take a train to Steenwijk, which will take 3,5 hours, followed by a 15 minute bus ride. Your return trip from Giethoorn to Brussels will be even longer, because Brussels is further south from Giethoorn.

You asked for advice, so here is mine; don’t do this.
