Is caffeine causing constipation in your baby?

I'm a bit stressed at the moment because my son who is 11 months is severely constipated for a few weeks. I'm starting to wonder if its because I started having coffee and chocolate again recently. I did cut it out for 5 days and saw no improvement in his constipation so assumed it was not that. I only have one nespresso in the morning and a few chocolates through the day.
I initially removed caffeine when he was about 3 months old because it used to make him fussy and have gas. But when I reintroduced it at about 10 months he had no problems that I could see until he started getting constipation. I have googled this but not much comes up so I was wondering if other mums have experineced this or is it more likely its from something else?
I have tried juice, pureed prunes and nothing works so he is currently having parachoc and coloxyl. He drinks about 100-150mls of water thats all he wants during the day.
Please dont respond if you feel the need to be nasty.
