Favorite fitted for nightime diaper?

This has probably been asked a million times, sorry.
I use JUST pockets during the day with bamboo prefolds as inserts.
I use a bigger size bamboo prefold in a diaper overnight and it's usually fine, sometimes still has dry spots in the back in to morning.
Sometimes it's completely saturated in the morning. I'd rather buy like 3-4 fitted to use overnight.

I really love bamboo, I'd love to get a bamboo blend fitted.
I've been looking at the Diaper Rite bamboo fitted diapers (they look like GMD workhorse). I don't like that they have no closures though. I prefer snap closures, I don't want to snappi or pin and I hate velcro and aplix.
I've looked at the snap version of GMD workhorse but I worry about them being absorbent enough, I'd love if they had a bamboo version but they don't.
I've seen that there is a OS bamboo fitted by Imagine, I'm considering that too.
There are also co-op diapers like THX bamboo or hemp fitted.

What are your favorites? Favorite covers too?

Babee greens hemp/cotton combo, sbish OBF, VHLC or HLC, Sandy's bamboo. A workhorse at night unless stuffed with a bunch of doublers just isn't enough. We use sbish wool or a Blueberry coverall.

Sbish is super absorbent. I recently teste the absorbency of most of my diapers and inserts. My sbish snapless help the most by far. Almost 22 oz. if you don't like the snapless their hlc size2 is the same absorbency but with snaps. They are pricier but so are all the doublers a wh requires

Sorry to hijack but what is the difference between the hlc and their overnight bamboo? I was going to buy the overnight bamboo...

The overnight is completely made if bamboo fleece so more absorbent and sized so you'd need to size up as your lo grows. The hlc is made of bamboo terry and has a fold over rise with snap in bamboo fleece soaker. I found it was enough absorbency for my guy. And I like that it cleans super easy. Where I'm actually battling ammonia with a used obf I got. :/. There are ups and downs with either.

Thanks for the response! My boy is 15lbs and 4.5 months old. He still nurses at least 3-4 times a night so I need something because the 1am changes are not doing it for me.

Re: Favorite fitted for nightime diaper?

Well honestly my guy just became a heavy wetter in the day he used to just flood night diapers. But he's never leaked in a hlc or snapless. He doesn't leak in the obf but the cleaning routine has made me not wanna do another one :/. The hlc with the snap in soaker holds 20-22oz that's plenty in my experience. It is a bit bulkier than a sized diaper but for nighttime use I don't mind the bulk.
