She could be having night terrors.My son has them. Do not wake her up, it will make them worse. I find the best thing to decrease them is to get a really good bedtime routine and do it the same every single night. Also an earlier bedtime might be more helpful. Since we started a 7pm bedtime routine his night terrors have by half. Studies show that the more tired they are, the higher the occurrence. Good luck!
