Constipation remedies for babies: Karo syrup

Message length 300 characters recommended

This is an old remedy that is no longer effective, because today's commercially prepared dark corn syrup might not contain the type of chemical structure that draws fluid into the intestine and softens stool. This makes dark corn syrup ineffective for infant constipation. Please do not use Karo syrup for constipation--there are better remedies and medications.
