If they do not leak, please describe your nightime diapering system. (Especially if it's a boy! )
Now, even though she can flood a diaper, a premium CPF is plenty for her at night. And she has been known to leak out of a sposie at night. I think she is a "power" pee'er than anything. She saves it all up, and then opens up the floodgates!
We often stuff a pocket with a couply of Joey Bunz and a microfiber towel. That works well, too.

and my way through my stash.
Back when she was a heavy wetter (which she isn't really anymore) we only had leaks when I skimped on the absorbancy ... hemp doublers saved us!
Nowadays the only time we have leaks is when the wool covers need lanolizing (and right now I can't find the bottle of lanolin I had on the bathroom counter ...darned PG brain) ... night time diaper is a hemp fitted of some sort with a 4 layer hemp french terry doubler and a joeybunz fleece topped doubler as well or just a plain FCB maybe with an extra doubler thrown in (favs are FCB because I don't have to go searching for a fleece topped doubler :LOL) ...and I'm hoping we'll LOVE the nightlights (if they EVER get here) ...

Hope you find a system that works for you
I do sometimes have leaks with my four year old dd if dh forgets to double cover. She typically wears a PUL aio to bed and we put either a wool cover or butt sweater longies over that.
I think the double cover does the trick for us.
System: Poochies or other thick fitted with fleece topped doubler. Under the doubler but in the diaper, 2 hemp inserts (jbs or similar). All that under wool or fleece pants (usually fleece).
This will hold him all night. Lately, he's been waking and requesting a change (or two) overnight, though. The last dipe I put on him in the middle of the night is usually dry in the morning (last night he was dry from 4 am until 9 am).
dd (toddler)- sugar plum baby hemp fitted with trifold soaker, Bumpy wool cover
ds1 (toddler)- Peewell fitted diaper, Aristocrats or Bumpy wool
ds2 (infant)- sugar plum baby or peewell fitted, Aristocrats or Lana wool
Our baby leaked all the time in cloth so he wears sposies. His Nightlight is pretty good- it's the cover issue we're having problems with. Hoping Jaime will solve that one this week
I put Jack to bed in whatever is handy, usually one of the same fitteds we use for daytime, and some recycled sweater pants. He never leaks, he is never completely soaked, he nurses all night to boot. He doesn't care if he is wet either.
I do change him when I go to bed, about midnight, then around 7am when I get up. So he isn't in the same diaper for hours and hours like some of the heavy sleepers here.
I will not be surprised if his pee patterns change, but it is pretty easy for night right now.
I have 2 options I'm using currently for my 16 month ds heavy night time wetter.
1. Fuzbaby Sleep tight, but I take the doubler and fold it in half and stick it behind the flaps so at the boy wet zone I have 12 layers!!!!. Then use one of my wool covers. But he wakes up damp with this system, some times I put a suede liner in.
2.FluffyMail Night lite I was so lucky to get at the last stocking, these are completly fleece line so he wakes up dry, and the doubler you stick in the pocket has been enough for us, but if I neede I could stick another doubler at the wet zone. This also just in one of my wool covers.
We just change our system all of the time and experiment. Last night he had a fleece/flannel insert, trifolded ubcpf, and a premium ubipf snappid on top with an aristrocrat cover. The premium and aristrocrat were not even wet this morning!!!
Bulk him up! And then you can experiment with trimming the system down.

SURPRISE! New little one, due Sept. 2013
We use FB with a premium prefold and a small doubler or a cloud 9 softie and a fleece topped doubler with a nylon pull on cover. The leaks happen mostly with the FB.
I also have to add that when we have used a sposie at night they almost always leak. DS mostly sleeps on his side and there is nothing absorbant there on a sposie.
We use a Very Baby Simply Nights (can't wait for the rest to get here lol) usually we stick in a wool doubler, and either longies, an organic Kiwi Pie, or a wool flannel cover I made. If I put in a wool doubler, the outside of the diaper is dry in the morning, if I forget it, the outside is damp but the cover is dry.
