You do NOT sound like an awful mom. Believe me, there were days I did lay DS in the crib and go outside (the only place you couldn't hear him) and just cry and cry because I couldn't get him to stop crying.

If you can, get a miracle blanket. DS could break out of anything else. Both he and DD act mad as hell when you first wrap them up, but after 5 minutes they settle down and sleep SO much better. Her getting more sleep will help you and her a ton too. GOod luck.
