Before starting to use two diapers at night maybe you could try just using two doublers instead? Is the diaper completly saturated in the morning or are there some dry parts? If there are dry parts then your problem isn't with absorbancy but with something else. Try an extra liner and if that doesn't work then you can try other things.
A couple suggestions:
-Have you changed detergents lately? If so maybe the new one has fabric softener in it and this is affecting the absorbancy of the diaper (some detergents have softener built right in!)
-How old are your covers? Could they be losing their waterproofness? Check for this by putting a clean but wet (saturated with water but not dripping wet) diaper inside a cover. Fold it over and pat/press gently around to see if any wetness seeps through.
-Are the covers the right size? Maybe they're getting a little on the small size and this causes problems only at night when it's more critical?
-Could the top or bottom of the pjs be creeping into the diaper during the night and wicking moisture?
For selling, you can do it on eBay and it's fairly easy. All you really need is a digital camera and that's it. Just follow the directions on the site and it's easy. You can also sell them right here on this board. Just start a post with what you have to sell, the condition it's and how much you'd like for it (state wether it's in US or CA dollars because there are Canadians and Americans here so it can get confusing).
