Does he have a temp, or any virus symptoms?
My son has done that before due to ear infections.
Can't remember if he did it for teething though.

I remember reading several times that this could be a sign of teething or ear infection. Basically pain in that general area often causes the tugging.

My 7 month old is the same and is teething. I did take him to GP to get it checked as I wanted to make sure

It can be a tired sign, a teething sign or sign of an ear infection.
Usually if it is just at one ear, it will be an ear infection or teething-related.
If it is both, it is probably a tired-sign (unless he is unfortunate enough to have pain on both sides). But you probably know his tired signs now?
Maybe try some panadol and see if it makes a difference, at least you will know then if pain-related and whether to see a gp or not.
Good luck and hope your little baby is okay xx

Thank you ladies. I didn't even think of an ear infection. I took him to the GP just to be sure and his ears and throat are clear. Maybe his top teeth are cutting through.
