Constipation: 2-3 tsp karo corn syrup/4 oz water 1-2x's /day for infants < 6 mos. Prune juice, baby prunes or pear juice for babies older than 6 months of age. Prunes/prune and/or pear juice, increased fruits/vegetables for older children. The common denominator for kids older than 6 months is increased fiber.
