I wouldn't consider a CGM optional right now. You need to be able to sleep in more than 3 hour increments and I don't see any way around the frequent testing without a CGM. Also, how is your daughter feeling? I find consistent highs at night can give me a yucky hungover feeling the next day. Lots of fluids will help with that though both before bed and when she wakes up.
ETA: Looking over it again I am going to change my opinion on the aggressive temp basals. The 140% and correction actually worked really well. You may try to switch her basal to 130% of current basal from 10 PM on and test frequently and see what happens.
