Our pediatrician told us to put a tea spoon of Karo Syrup (Corn syrup) in a 4 oz bottle of formula/breast milk. Worked wonders! Didn't cause diarrhea just helped her go. She is 3 now and we still give it to her when she is constipated. Usually worked within a couple hours. Good luck. Warm bath can help too.
