firstly try giving boiled water between feeds. mis with a TINY bit of orange juice if he won't take the water.
we have used prunes with ds but you really only need a very small amount. i got some soft dried ready to eat ones and blended them with a little bit of milk.
He only needed about 2 tsp to clear the blockage!

gave him a whole ice-cube once and he had really bad runs later on bad mummy

Only asked because I've found SMA gold to be really constipating, just switching it if that is your formula could help pretty quickly IME!
