Child sleeping uncontrollably

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

Some good friends of mine are very concerned about their 6 year old son. Since April he will suddenly announce that he is tired and then fall asleep where he is. He'll sleep for at least an hour, sometimes up to 3 hours, and then carry on with the day, but going to bed early and having to be woken up in the morning.

He's had blood tests and a whole host of other tests and there doesn't seem to be anything notably wrong with him. He's currently sleeping about 15 hours a day and is still often very tired.

Has anyone else had any experience with this kind of problem? Do you have any suggestions of what else can be done? I'd really appreciate any information you can give us to pass on to them. Thank you.
