hello,
The ideal weight for your child should be in the range of 7.5 to 11.5 kgs . So he is underweight. First of all i would like to know when he vomits, if he vomits after drinking milk? Also does he still have fever? What is the quantity of food intake he takes?
take care

You need not worry much, baby will be fine. Investigations have all been normal. To increase apetite, you can try Liv 52 drops, 10 drops twice daily before feed.
