Crying before bed and nap. Can someone help me maybe??

Maybe you ladies can help me out with something here. For the last couple of weeks on and off, Ashley has been crying before bed at night but not before nap time. But since Sunday she has been crying and fussing even before bed time on Sunday. So she didn't get a nap on both Saturday because we were go, go, go, all day for her birthday and Sunday because I just gave up, got her out of bed, but went down fine for both days for bed for the night with out a problem.

Well the last couple of days, she has been crying and fussing both before nap time and bed time at night. She will cry for about 5 minutes or less and go right out.

I am not sure if it's because she doesn't want to take naps anymore. I am afraid if she doesn't get a nap during the day, it will be even harder to get her down for bed at night. Does anyone know why she is doing this or is it because she is getting older and doesn't want to take naps anymore?? I going to see her doctor tomorrow. Should I also bring it up to her as well while I am there??

    If it's only a few minutes she is crying she is probably just not wanting sleep but needs it, or some seperation anxiety. If she has a stuffed animal or something she likes I would give that to her at bedtime. Maybe try a nightlight if she doesn't already have one.
