First thing to remember is that this is just a phae! It will end!
WE had the same thing with our 2 year old a few months ago - she went from gong straight to sleep to crying and crying. Nightmare. And we didn't leave her cry it out as she seemed too old for that.
We messed around with her nap times and found shortening her nap from 12.30 to no later than 1.45 menat she was tired at 7pm and went down much easier. So i reckon try looking at her nap times.
Also, have you tried singing songs together before bed? Reading stories? This tends to calm my little girl before bedtime.
But whatever happens, remember, this will pass! We're currently in a pahse of finding our little girl taking her pj top off every night!
