Obviously your daughter feels warm and secure when she sleeps like this. It may have started off the first time following her having a bad dream and needing to be comforted, but now it is becoming or has become a habit. She will wake up every night and want you to come and sleep in her bed. If you feel that you can carry on for a while still letting her sleep like this the that is fine. Hopefully this is just a passing stage and she will stop after a few more weeks. If you find that it is disrupting your sleep then it may be best to try to stop this habit now by using the controlled crying method.
