Constipation infant: Would try prune juice first.usually consitpation is insufficient fluids, so increasing fluids can help. Fluids should be a mix of water and electrolytes not just water) pedilyte, juices as pure water dilutes sodium. Try infant barley cereal which has more fiber. f/u/w/doc http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/infant-and-toddler-health/expert-answers/infant-constipation/faq-20058519
