thanks for writing to health care magic.

recurrent vomiting is definitely not normal.
You rightly mentioned that the weight gain is also not as what it is supposed to be.

does he have fever or recurrent episodes of fever.
he may be having what is called gastroesophageal reflux. Your doctor will confirm the diagnosis after necessary investigations and advise the needful
