I hate bedtime!!!

I just don't know what to do. It takes me 2+ hours to get ds to bed. He's so tired and needs to sleep. It's the same way with naps. I just wear him but his naps are short as I know he gets disturbed. Today he napped a total of 2 hours maybe. I just spent an hour nursing him and he took himself off and I tried to put him down and he woke up crying. I am so frustrated with this nightly cycle of nurse, put down, cry. DH is in there trying to rock him but he's just screaming. DH had asked to do a bottle and I said no. Now I'm wishing I had. He won't let anyone else hold him or soothe him. I can't put him in any nursery. I wear him all the time. I get no break. He's a great baby and easy going until it's time to sleep. He won't take a paci or suck a thumb. I'm 6 days shy of 6 months and I'm struggling with continuing to nurse him. I do love nursing him and the ease of not packing bottles is great but this nightly marathon is becoming frustrating and exhausting. My other boys don't get any snuggle time or much play time with me because I'm so consumed with the baby. I'm just beyond frustrated right now and don't know what to do.
