If all it takes to settle him down is a drink, I would give him water and let him go back to sleep. Both of my boys ( 9 and 3) still wake up thirsty at night from time to time.
Is it possible when he awakens at 6 something he is actually ready to get up? MANY kids start their day that early.
Eta: the sippy cup of water can be prepared before going to bed, and you would just have to give it to him.
It does get easier mama!
