I would guess that she is either having nightmares/terrors, or that she has a stomach issue. I was a live-in nanny for a two-year old with the same problem. Then, I began to notice that she only did this if her father had given her milk before bed. I suggested that he get her checked for lactose intolerance, and it turned out that she WAS allergic to milk.
