Thank you for your query.

You have not mentioned the birth weight but the present weight appears to be on the higher side for your son. It appears that he is being overfed and that is why he is not demanding it feeds so frequently. The best course would be to plot the child's weight on a standard graph and discuss with your doctor.

He is receiving the correct treatment for his upper respiratory tract infection which should be continued.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.

Welcome to the forum.
A baby suffering from gastroenteritis might throw up very frequently after feeds. The best way to deal with it is to keep him/her on fluids, so that he doesn’t get dehydrated. It is helpful to give him smaller amounts more frequently than larger amounts given at once. If your child has abdominal pain, is unable swallow and keep fluids, has high fever, is lethargic or acting extremely ill, vomits for more than 12 hours immediately rushed to the doctor without any delay.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you
