Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since which day of birth has your child been throwing up. Usually common cause of this is swallowing of air. Do keep baby against your shoulder and try to pat out the air from the baby's stomach. If the vomiting is during 2-3 weeks after birth it could be a sign of obstruction for which you will need to consult a Surgeon. Do not stop feeding the baby. Avoid giving any water, honey etc. to the baby except breast milk.

Welcome to HCM.

You have not mentioned the age of your son.

If the doctor has got the necessary tests done and finds every thing is alright, then you need not worry. Try not to force feed or over feed the child. Try to avoid giving the child what he does not like to eat. Encourage the child to drink water frequently so that he does not have any difficulty in passing motion.

Commonest cause for a child to throw up is, giving the child what that child hates or does not like to eat.

Always remember not to force feed your child and every thing should be fine.

Wishing you and your son all the best.
