Karo syrup in every bottle?

My cousin has a 7 week old baby. She breastfed him for a couple of weeks and then switched to formula and she says he has been constipated ever since. She just texted me this am because he hasn't gone #2 since Sunday and asked what to do. She says they have switched formula twice and she has been putting Karo in every bottle for a month! I honestly don't know what to tell her without sounding like I am pushing my beliefs on how to feed babies on her. I breastfed mine for at least 8 months before starting solids or anything with a handful of formula feeds for my dd when I didn't pump enough to send to daycare so I honestly don't really have any experience with what she is asking me. Any advice?
