She's always been easily constipated from birth but recently it's been bad enough that she popped a couple hemorrhoids. We tried prune juice but not much luck and glycerin only worked a little to help stuff squish down enough to come out without tearing. She's really not on solid food yet so that's not what's stopping her up and the probiotics in her formula used to help but not anymore.
Any ideas for what to try now?

Have you tried another formula? Are you using a powdered formula? Maybe your pipes have too much iron in them & that's what is constipating her. I'd try premixed liquid formula instead. I have never heard of an infant with hemorrhoids. Have you spoken to the Pediatrician about this?
