My baby is scratching at his ears a lot

My son is 11 months old, and he pulls at both his ears a lot. An this be a sign of something serious like autism or something? I've taken him to the Dr. a few times and they said nothing was wrong with his ears. Just curious to know what other people think. Thanks :-)

my daughter went through a phase of playing/pulling/messing with her ears for a month or two. I was worried she was getting ear infections and took her to the doc. the doc told me she was fine and it's common for babies to go through a phase of ear tugging because they realized that they have ears attached to their heads. it's just a discovery phase. hope this helps! :)
