My son suffered really badly, we started to feed him boiled(but cooled) sugared water, inbetween his feeds and this worked a treat. If not try a little prune juice with cooled boiled water, thats what my doctor suggested.

could be the formula you're using. maybe try burpping more often and using just a little bit of a baby laxative or even gas drops. ask your doctor first before using a laxative though. or even apple juice, if your baby is old enough to use juice.

If your baby is old enough for solids I highly suggest prunes!!! My son was really constipated and the prunes worked within a few hours.

I agree with both mothers here...my son had bad constipation...I gave him a bit of water to start, that didnt do very much but then I gave him some apple juice and prune juice at my docs request and fixed it like a charm.
