Why would my 5yo have a sleeping heart rate of 86 one night but 100 the next night at the exact time of night and not ill?

In brief: Nightmares

Heart rate can vary even at rest depending on stimuli.
I'm glad she's feeling better. Make sure she is drinking plenty of fluids.

In brief: Normal

There are normal variations in heart rate during wake and sleep.
They are influenced by growth and digestive work.I wouldn't worry about it.
