I second that it may be an ear infection. My son tugs at his ears when he's sick even though he's never had an ear infection. It could be a sinus infection too or just a cold. I'm sorry for you as sick babies are no fun for anyone :(. At that age the best things I could do for my sick children were applying vicks baby rub, using a humidfier, encouraging lot's of fluids and letting them sleep. Good luck!

ear infection! thats my guess... don't let him lay with a bottle... ESP if he is congested.... and if you are nursing, try to keep him more upright
