13 month old not wanting to go to sleep

Hi moms
I'm desperate... My 13 month old has dropped naps from 2 to 1 and as a result is overtired. She has nightmares often when sleeping which wakes up and then I struggle for 2 to 3 hours to get her back to sleep or if she does sleep "ok" I battle to get her to go to bed. I have never sleep trained her before, we would just rock her and when she's half asleep put her down and shed settle on her own. I tried limiting her morning nap to not more than an hour so that by the afternoon she is tired enough to go down for a shortish afternoon nap, sometimes this works but mostly she fights her sleep. I don't know what to do to help her. When she usually stirs at night I just give her a bottie or her dummy and she goes straight back to sleep so unless shes had a nightmare I seldom even pick her up during the night. Any help is welcome please. Tx
