It is normal for babies to awaken at night when they are approaching a major milestone like saying their first word or crawling or standing up. It can also happen if there is a change in his routine like maybe a parent resuming work.Sometimes teething will also disturb them. It's OK to allow them to self soothe and let them cry a little and put themselves to sleep. Most kids this age are also attached to a comfort object and it's OK to encourage this like a blanket or a soft cloth toy or pillow.
