I'm sorry you are going through this. just a suggestion, maybe you could visit the PPD forum? there are so many nice mamas there ready to offer their advice..

I have not been in your situation, but I think you need someone to help you out more. I don't think that not bf'ing, or crib-sleeping is going to help you, because I think your baby is still too young, and he needs you. If he is a high needs or fussy baby, have you read Dr. Sears fussy baby book?

Also, if he in fact is high needs, then you definetely need more help & time to yourself so that you can cope with this. I recommend pumping and giving that milk to baby if you are about to flip out and need to disconnect.

I'm sorry I don't have any more advice, and I hope it gets better for you.

not in my case, actually. My ds is #2, and I work p/t to get out of the house a couple hours a week, and pumping for me is quite relaxing and it does give me a break. when all you want to do (in the OP's case) is to have a break fron nursing, IMO pumping is a good idea, and havind dh feed the bm to baby, so you can go out for a while and clear your head.
