If he isn't able to keep it down there isn't anything you can give him to "fatten" him up. Most digestion and absorption happens farther down in the digestive track not the stomach. So if he keeps it down for 20 minutes then throws it up he really isn't getting any calories or nutrition.

Your best bet before force feeding him is contact his dr and tell them what is going on. If they don't care or have suggestions I would find another dr.

Don't stop eating to control the weight.
Avoid fats, junk, and fast foods to get rid of the excess body fat.
Eat more fruits, vegetables, and protein foods for the weight management.

There is protein drinks like ensure but like Kicker said if hes not able to keep it down talk to his doctor. The constant throwing up can do some additional damage. Please get in touch with me Sunshine.
