Is it too early to move from a cot to a bed?

My son is 18 months and we started the transition from cot to bed.

It was wonderful for two nights, when he merely woke up a little earlier than normal. The third night he woke up twice and I had to lay with him for a while. Last night he simply would not sleep. He kept on crying and getting out of the bed - to the point that he was screaming. I ended up sleeping in his bed, which kept him quiet for the most part. He continued crying at times throughout the night, and could not be left alone at all. Could it be that he is not ready for the bed? Any advice would be appreciated.

No, we just thought that it would be good if, once we start potty training, he is in a bed and not the cot. I would like him to wake me if he needs to go at night.

18 months does seem young, is there a reason you are trying to move him to a bed?
