He cannot sleep without a bottle but when he has had enough he vomit and we are concern about his weight. Plse advice on what medication he can take and what to do.

There are at least 2 issues here. Your baby son still does not want to eat any food that is coarse in texture. This is very common at his age and you should only let him eat foods that are pureed and very soft that he will be prepared to eat. Only introduce one food at a time and make sure that he is eating that food well before going onto the next one. You say that you are concerned about his weight and that he vomits his feeds. He probably has a reflux problem and he should be seen by his paediatrician so that he can be put onto the correct tretament.
