A 5-week-old boy presented to the hospital for increasing head circumference, failure to thrive, irritability, and vomiting. He had been well until 2 weeks of age and then developed back arching, and from 3 weeks, he began vomiting after every feed. He was awake for only 60 to 90 minutes at a time and did not respond to voice or loud noises. Plz, suggest the Dx?
