I have read that low iron may cause sleep disturbances in children this age.  Has he had his iron levels checked?

Does he know why he's waking up?  Nightmares?  Noises?  Bathroom trips?

He just wakes up for no reason I ask him and he says that he doesn't have bad dreams and it stays quite here so I no its not that an he doesn't wake-up that much to go to the bathroom

I have the same problem with my dd6.  I have no advice but just wanted to say good luck.  I know it is hard.  We do have a few night terrors, but she hasnt ever slept well not since she was a baby.  Though she needs too or she is always in trouble.  I hope you find answers.
