Cut down on the formula (if you are around him to nurse more often), nurse him more frequently, and get more fiber in YOUR diet and he 'should' be fine. 5 days w/out pooping doesn't necessarily mean there is a problem at all. Constipation isn't about how long a person goes between poops, but how the poop is when it comes out.

I'm not saying there IS no problem... just that I would not automatically jump to that conclusion just yet.

No he is too little for Apple juice. You can give a little bit of water or put 1 tablespoon of dark Karo syrup in his bottle.
