My understanding was that the brown sugar does nothing, it's just to make the warm water taste good so the baby will drink it. When my daughter has been blocked up, I've given her kiwi fruit, lots of water and a nice warm bath and clockwise belly rubs, it usually gets her going within a day.

In NZ, the first thing they give in hospitals for constipation is 30mls of kiwi fruit purée/juice... It works a charm.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I will give kiwi a go because I tried prune juice yesterday morning and lunchtime and in the afternoon she developed a bad rash all over her back and chest. She wasn't unwell at all, and prune was the only new food so think I should avoid it! Gave pears twice yesterday too but she's had those before, still very hard poos today though. So kiwi sounds like a.good idea!
