6yr old sleeps non-stop

Hi

I have a 6yr old niece, she sleeps non-stop. In the mornings when driving to work she will be asleep before we even drive for 5kms and its the same thing in the afternoons. She can even sleep while standing in a que to pay for stuff and she will just close her eyes and dose off. Even on weekends she will sleep when driving to the shops, this is becoming a real problem. Kindly assist

This is just WAY too sleepy. One must think of general illnesses, such as anemia, kidney disease, tuberculosis, etc. If she snores, she may have a breathing problem during sleep.

She should be seen by a pediatrician to do a full evaluation.
