try giving her 2oz of pear juice. My first was a preemie and i had to give it to her every day so she could go do to the formula she was on.

First, stop the Karo. It's a botulism risk. Their website specifies that it's not intended for infants. Second, when she goes, what is the poop like? Hard? Soft? Dry? Loose? Also, have you tried to stop the cereal and see if it helps? I know the symptoms started weeks after the cereal, but you never know, and it can't hurt to try.

STOP THE KARO!!! Karo can be deadly in infants and is NOT recommended!!!
Stop the cereal! Baby's stomach obviously is not ready for food introduction and is telling you in the only way it can. There is no benefit for baby and obviously it is causing harm so please stop the cereal!
