Yes very common. I put a drip of Karo Syrup in my kids bottles, you just use a tiny amount and works great. I'm sure this isn't advised anymore by doctors for one reason or another, but it works.

Do NOT USE KARO. It is a health risk, as it may contain botulism, which can be deadly in infants.
Many doctors still recommend the corn syrup for constipation, but this is a practice we would like to see stopped. The reason is, in recent years, studies have shown that corn syrup *can* harbor botulism spores, which are a deadly toxin produced by bacteria. While adult immune systems may be able to handle the minute amounts that could be present, a baby would be at a very increased risk.
Stick with what your doctor told you to do. Have you tried an elimination diet to help with possible problems from dairy or something else?
