Night waking is natural.  How often do you sleep through the night without rousing a bit to move a pillow or roll over?  Kids do the same thing.  The goal is to help them feel secure enough that this mild arousal doesn't fully wake them as they get older.  Younger infants need to be fed or may need their diaper changed.  Until your child is fully potty learned, you may be called for diaper duty.  Once your child is over 19 months, you might consider adding a nutritious snack to your bedtime routine.  This will help them sleep more soundly until morning.  Try an apple and yogurt or toast with peanut butter.
