"Don't treat infant constipation with corn syrup. Dark corn syrup was once a common home remedy for infant constipation. However, today's commercially prepared dark corn syrup might not contain the type of chemical structure that draws fluid into the intestine and softens stool."---Mayo Clinic.
They may have used it a long time ago but the way they manufacture things now, there are so many chemicals in them that it changes the natural things in that. It may not work at all and be too much sugar in the system. You would be best asking the doctor of your child what best to use in this case.

They actually make products to help with constipation, I wouldn't give him Karo syrup. Before giving your son anything on a regular basis I would talk to his doctor, but there is a product called myralax (sp) that I've used with my son under doctors orders. But look at increasing his water and fiber intake to do it more naturally.
