Is she a full-time-time student?  If not, did she earn more than $4050 in 2017?

That is important.  If she made over $4050 in 2017 then you cannot claim her since she is not a full-time student.  If she made less than that amount you could claim her (and her child) as your dependent for 2017.

Wait for her W-2.  Never use a pay stub to prepare a tax return.  The information will not really match.
Meanwhile:
IRS interview to help determine who can be claimed:

I usually do wait for w-2 just start the process and once it comes verify info before going forward and if I am able to claim them will she still have to file her return?

Is she getting a W-2, or a 1099-MISC? Were any taxes withheld?

Even if you are able to claim your daughter as your dependent, she can file a tax return to recover taxes withheld from her pay.  But is that is the situation, then she will need to say on her return that she can be claimed as a dependent on someone else's return.  It really all depends on that figure of $4050 for you.

so if she falls under the amount listed then we can claim both on ours as dependents for our return and then she would do her return saying be claimed on someone elses and will that hurt her more than help?

She must report her situation truthfully. If you can claim her, she cannot claim the baby (but you can).
