My boy is 7 mnths and just started shaking his head in a no like manner. I have read a little about it. Just that its something new they are learning. I guess I am worried about his ears. I also read that it can be related to teething and pain they feel in their ears. Can anyone help me out on this one?

My son started doing the same at around the same age...it is new to them and feels different. I think it is completely normal and there is no need to worry (that I know of). He is now 9 months and still thinks it is funny and laughs when he sees the reaction from others as he shakes his head.
My son started to do this around the same age but this was due to an ear infection, as i soon realised as i took him to doctors. No need to worry as my son had other symptoms too like pulling on his ear and high temperature (38 +). If your child hasn't got these symptoms then its possible it's a new learning experience.
Hope this helps
