Hey--we use BG AIO's during the day, but they frequently can't absorb enough at night. Any recommendations? AIOs preferred but anything that will keep her dry is good! (Max sleep right now 7 hr stretch.) Thanks!
I think you'll just have to experiment. The only thing that's ever worked for my kids was a cover + 2 prefolds. I just trifolded them and laid them in the cover. Anything less their clothes would be damp in the morning.
I need some advice on this same issue. My daughter sleeps for 9-12 hours at night and BG nor FB can keep her dry. I found myself waking her to change her every few hours because I couldn't stand the thought of her being wet all night, and then, as a last resort, began using 7th Generation sposies at night (I know...I hate it) as a temporary solution that has lasted far too long. I need help! I cannot find a leakproof night time diaper! Aaugh!
I was just coming on here to post the very same question. We us eBG 3.0's and I double stuff them. I have tried a sposie at night and that leaks too. We co-sleep, so it's not fun waking up damp and having to change the bed every morning or even in the middle of th night!
The best thing overnight IMO is a fitted, preferably a hemp one. I never have leaks with fitteds, as long as it's a good one! My favorites for night time are cricketts and piddle poddles. I think the cricketts work better, though, and they're much cheaper. Pair it with wool and you're virtually fail proof
The only AIO I trust to make it through the night for us is DryBees Hybrid AIO because you can add extra a hemp insert into the pocket. With a good hemp insert that is a great nighttime diaper for my DD. Other than that, we stick with pocket for night time and always stuff with a combination of microfiber and hemp. Microfiber stuffed on top of the hemp since that absorbs quickly and hemp holds a lot. Super Do inserts are designed for heavy wetters and nighttime use and are a combination of microfiber and hemp.
We use a bamboo fitted (bamboozle) with a fleece topped doubler to help keep her dry as I think the bamboo feels wet to the touch. Then whatever cover, mostly a wool soaker but any cover will do really. we have never had a leak problem.

I've found that what is important at night is getting all around protection. Pockets no matter how much I stuff will leak because there is nothing on the side to absorb. I prefer fitteds because of their ease, but a fastened prefold with another trifolded inside would work just fine. I use a wool soaker for my little one, and a wool wrap for my toddler. DS uses Cricketts and DD uses swaddlebees OV with a large berry plush hemp inside (she pees a lot.) I've also used a bamboozle and liked it for absorbancy, but the flap annoyed me for some reason. Anyway, I think that fitteds and wool is the best for nighttime and I use exclusively aios during the day.
