Do you pay attention to the temperature of the food? It should be around 38-40 degrees Celsius. Can you try and find a CAV (certified avian vet)? If you can't find a CAV then try to find a Exotics vet.
Does it vomit up all the food or just a little bit? Do you weigh it? If you haven't weighed it yet can you weigh it and tell us how much it weighs?

I have also come across the same situation with my bird. I have posted about it in this forum and you may be able to find some info there.

Read some of EllenD's posts on hand-feeding (she is pretty good with that stuff). Keep in mind that her posts were written to people whose birds may have been slightly younger (or older, in some cases) and different species, so pay attention to detail when you read!
Scroll down until you see her name--also make sure you aren't feeding them cereal mixes for humans (these contain toxic levels of vitamins). You need to be feeding them a hand-feeding formula for parrots specifically and you need to watch out for yeast (which is very closely related to the temp of the formula--which must be exact). <---PAGE 3
