My 12 month, just over a cold, will not go to sleep (naps or night) without being held

My 12 month old just had a cold where I was having to hold him at night to be able to sleep. He will now fight his day time naps and night time sleep until he is held. He was doing very well until he got sick. He would lay down for 2 naps a day without fuss and go to sleep for at least an hour. At night he would fuss a little but would go to sleep and stay asleep all night. I dont know what to do. I have tried to snuggle with him in his crib, the 5 minute rule, the stand next to the crib bit, cry it out method (he just keeps screaming),but holding him is all that helps. I have also tried giving him a bottle; we weaned him off of them prior to him getting sick, but thought it might soothe him. Any suggestions or encouragement would be greatly appreciated. Its been 12 years since I had one this little. And she slept great from the time she was 2 months old.
