Try prune or pear juice/puree. They usually work like a charm. I don't know how old your lo is so I don't know if he's eating beans yet but they work like a laxative with my ds. I can expect an explosion the next day after a feeding of beans (black beans). Also, when my ds was 4 months old he went through a period of being constipated (probably the cereal!) and I tried giving him 1oz prune with 3oz water. He wouldn't take it so I ended up adding 1oz prune juice to his bottle of formula 1x a day every 3 days or so. It helped. I have never heard or read of barley cereal being good to fight against constipation. I think any kind of cereal makes their stools harder. My lo only tried barley cereal briefly and hated it. It tastes like cardboard....urgh.
