My 4 month old has been constipated for almost 3 weeks now and I was told to try kuro syrup but would really like to see if there's another way to cure it before trying that. Would really appreciate some suggestions.?

In brief: Karo=OK Juices easy

I generally go to full strength apple or prune juice at ounce doses 1-3xdaily as a first line for dry poo.
Baby juice is too dilute to work. Karo is ok, not fully absorbed like food & works like metamucil in some kids. If I use it I do so as a teaspoon full to 1-2 bottles/day.

In brief: See Below

I normally suggest prune juice or pear juice.
At 4 months of age, i would give your child 4 ounces a day.
