I know what you are going through, and you are not alone. I was very depressed after the birth of my son (my first baby). I am not as young as you, but was very anxious about my new role as a mother, and not feeling very confident. For the first three months of my sons life he cried non-stop and it was VERY frustrating, tiring, and stressful. My family was there to help out and support my husband and myself. I went almost everyday in the beginning to my grandmother's for extra help while my husband was at work.
Do you have family to help out??
Also if want advice for soothing your daughter's crying (when she has already eaten, slept), I can give you lots of help in that area.
ALWAYS put your baby in her crib and get away from her when you feel like you're going to snap. I had times when I felt like that. If you want to talk I can email you, if you want.
