Re: Karo syrup in every bottle?

I can't imagine that Karo corn syrup could have enough benefit that it would outweigh the damage done to the immune system of anybody, but in particular a seven week old baby. Sugar & corn syrup, in large part because of how refined they are, are like poison to the immune system. I would think a baby that had been switched to formula AND was getting that much sugar would be having some major difficulties! Also if she's been putting the corn syrup into every bottle for a month, it clearly is NOT working for the constipation so she needs to stop it.

She could try gripe water... or goat's milk instead of formula. Goat's milk can be a good substitute for human milk for people who have nursing difficulties.
