Brief Answer: Needs ultrasound Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writingto health care magic. Vomiting after each feed and with weight in borderline , needs to be fully evaluated. I would suggest ultrasound abdomen to look for any intestinal or stomach outlet obstruction which can can similar symptoms. Lactose intolerance too can present with vomiting but usually has loose stools associated with it. So to me that possibility is less likely. Start with ultrasound , that will allay all your worries , if that is normal don't worry. Wishing your kid great health. Regards Dr Arun
