8yo throws up for 2-3 consecutive days when he first gets a common cold. You're not my doctor, but is this really a normal thing?

8yo throws up for 2-3 consecutive days when he first gets a common cold. It's happened enough times now that, when I or his younger brother have a sniffle/sneeze, we know he'll be sneezing within the week and throwing up for a few days following "sneeze day". He's otherwise healthy. We asked the Doc, and got a, "yeah, that happens to some kids" response. The throwing up seems independent of the snot production of the cold.
You're not my doctor, but is this really a normal thing? If so, any strategies you have found for someone suffering with this that have helped?
