baby cough?

My baby has been coughing since her 4 month shots yesterday.  It seems to be worse when she is on her back and I'm not holding her.  However, she still is sleeping o.k.  Cause for concern? Should I call the doc?  I should add that she's also had a stuffy nose for about a week.

    When in doubt, call your pedi.

    Follow Up:  I called the pedi and she said that it's very common for babies to have a "behavioral cough".  It's attention -getting behavior especially when it's accompanied with screaching or other noises.  Hmmmm, she's already learned how to manipulate mama!
