Are you feeding any solids yet? If so, buy some of the prunes.

I diluted apple or pear juice, or a teaspoon of light Karo syrup in bottle, it can take up 12 hours to work so don't over do it. good luck

Thanks everyone! I tried the apple juice a few days ago and no changes, but I'll look into the other stuff. She's still on formula right now, but I bought some prunes, so maybe I'll give that a try
