We parents usually take knowledge of the fact that these nocturnal wake ups that we had such a hard time understanding, often thinking we had done something wrong or asking ourselves what the baby’s worries were and why he felt the need to party at night for hours and hours around the age of 7 or 8 months…was perfectly normal!.

So to you first time parents:

The simplest solution is to explain to him calmly that he may stay awake, as it is normal, there is NO point to forbid him to do so.

However do not give him a bottle nor a hug, let him play with his blanket until the will to sleep comes back to him.
