Help Constipated Baby

Kena - February 18

My baby is 7 weeks old and on formula and had been six days without pooping. So I was becoming worried b/c this is not normal for her. And she would just scream out and pull her legs up and her little stomach would be hard as a rock. Although the docter said she can go 10 days without pooping and everything be normal I was still really worried. I'm not going to let her hurt if there is something I can do about it. So I read online to give her 1 oz. of half water and half prune juice if she is 2 months. Well she's not quite but I figured whats a week. So to make a long story short she pooped within a hour and it wasn't dirreaha (sp). Now two days later she has started screaming out and pulling up her legs. Is it okay to give her one oz. of half water and half prune juice every 2-3 days? Let me know what you ladies think....

my ds is the same way. He's chronically constipated. Doc said I could give him 4-6oz of juice every day and it worked for about a week then he became constipated again by saying constipated I mean super hard big poopies. So now I'm trying a few drops of karo syrup in a couple ounces of juice. I just started it so I'll let you know how it works out. I tried the gerber apple/prune juice too and it didn't really help much. I was afraid to use prune juice because I know it can make you cramp, so I didn't use it.
