What most (not all) people mean is that "they don't want to get up night to deal with it". I don't think its a good idea to encourage children to sleep though a normal body process, instead of encouraging them to take care of business and resume sleep. A normal sleep pattern is to be roused from sleep to take care urination. Letting a baby sit in a full diaper also increases the chance of diaper rash, especially a chemical rash because in order to be more absorbant disposables require more chemical absorbers. It also makes night-time potty training difficult especially if you start late.
So the question is not what diaper absorbs the most, but what is the best way to take care of night diapering without disturbing the baby or yourself too much. Anticipate (babies usually rouse or fuss if they have to go in the middle of the night), be fast, be quiet, and be efficient (choose easy change nightwear).
