The best nighttime diaper solution

I was recently asked what is the best diaper for nighttime.  As far as extended absorbency goes, I always lean toward bamboo.  My absolute favorite are Sustainablebabyish organic bamboo fleece fitteds. 
They are oh so soft, and bulletproof as far as absorbency is concerned.  I'm not one to change diapers in the middle of the night on a newborn and these diapers do the trick of getting baby through the night and keeping PJs and bedding dry.  I have 3 newborn ones, but they are a bit on the pricey side running at about $24 per fitted.  So when my baby grew out of these, I went on a search for another fitted that would last through the night, be cost effective, and a one-size.  I came across Pooters bamboo fitteds
and purchased 3 for $14 a piece.  They are wonderful!  Not quite as soft as the Sbish fitteds, but when paired with an Econobum one-size cover, boy did they do the job as far as lasting a good 10-12 hours through the night and avoiding wet  PJs and bedding.  Pooters come with a fold-out insert that snaps in the front and you can fold it to where you need the most absorbency.  They also come with an additional lay in booster as well, providing you with 6 layers of absorbency per diaper.  
Like I said, they are a GREAT diaper!
What is your bulletproof nighttime solution?

Happy diapering!
