What works for constipation in babies?

My little girl went on Novalac It a couple of months ago because she was constipated. It worked like a charm and she started sleeping through the night. A week before her first birthday though she started having tummy troubles again. I took her to the doctor for a checkup and he gave me a lactulose syrup to use daily, but it doesn't seem to work. I've given her prunes and juice, I've cut down her milk intake(as suggested by the doctor), included more fresh fruit and veg into her diet, and we even used glycerin suppositories, which only worked the next day. She seems to have a lot of tummy cramps, sometimes during the wee morning hours and at times during the day. Any suggestions?
