In brief: NO

This is not close to normal and deserves further evaluation.
The conventional approach to reflux leaves much to be desired. I advise you seek the care of a good holistic md (ronald hoffman in manhattan would be a good choice). See http://bit.Ly/1b1avqs ; http://chriskresser.Com/what-everybody-ought-to-know-but-doesnt-about-heartburn-gerd for much more info.

In brief: No

Chronic acid reflux in children of those ages is somewhat rare.
Not sure how the diagnosis was made but throwing up bile and having severe pain in the abdomen is definitely not normal. They need to see a doc.
