Quickie... 3rd set of jabs today and ds has been pulling his ear a lot...

Hi all, just a quick one (I hope).

DS had his 3rd set of jabs this morning, and (understandably) has not been his usual smiling self today.

I noticed he was really pulling on his ear this afternoon as i walked him round and round the park to try to get him some rest.

he is teething too, but I am concerned.

I don't really know what ear pulling means, but I've had the HV and the like mention it in passing a few times, without explaining it's significance.

Any ideas ladies?

It could indicate an ear infection? Having said that my little terror pulls his ears when he is tired. I'd go get him checked out that the dr's.

He's probably just found out where his ears are and what they feel like!

with the size of his tabs I'm surprised it took this long to find them. That and the hair will be my lasting gift to the poor chap...
