Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Children get stomach pain because of so many reasons.
Some times the cause can be simple and benign. Rarely there could be a dangerous cause for the stomach pain.
Your child needs to be investigated further. This is because he is waking up with pain. I think you should consult your doctor for examinations and investigation.

Hope this helps
Take care
