4mos old and CONSTIPATED!

I was contemplating giving her less than an oz of prune juice and 2oz of water..any suggestions?? She's taking the same formula but has recently had trouble going #2 because it has become "hard." Should I not try prune juice?

  • Kairo Syrup. My sister's son use to get constipated and the doctor suggested she put like a tablespoon of Kairo Syrup in his formula. You can get it from the grocery store and get the dark one,
