dark karo syrup

I have been giving my daughter dark karo syrup to help her have a bowel movement.  Well I have been giving it to her in 4 ounces of water. Now all of a sudden she won't drink it. Can I mix it in with her bottle or something else?

She is 7 months old. The nurse told me I could give her that

No, you can't give her that. Try some prune juice I guess?  Formula constipation is not exactly my expertise, is she getting solids?

I could try prune juice. Is it baby prune juice or regular. She is getting solid foods.

What is she eating for solids and how are you determining she is constipated?

she eats fruits and veggies and oatmeal. She has always had problems being constipated. She hasn't had a bowel movement in two days and if she goes without going for another day or so she gets cranky. I would like her to go at least once every other day because if she doesn't its harder for her to go. I want something to help her. She was going once every other day and its been 2 days now.

Stop the oatmeal, it's constipating. No cereals.

Thanks for filling me in! I'm flabberghasted that a doctor would advise giving a child that.
