My son is 2 years and 2 months old. I've started having this problem again with him waking anywhere between 3 - 5am with a totally soaked nappy and pyjamas and sheets wet. Does anyone else have this problem? We had this problem when using cloth nappies, so went to disposables. We use huggies. DS weighs 14.5kg,and he's in the Walker size nappies (he's well within the weight range!!!)
Can anyone make any suggestions? Different nappy brand perhaps?

My son is 21 months and I've had the exact same problem over the past week or two. He's also in huggies walkers and weighs the same.
The same thing used to happen to us when he was just outgrowing smaller nappies, but recently the nappy usually isn't soaked though, just his clothes. Walkers are supposed to go up to 18kg I think, so he shouldn't be too big for them yet. I'm going to try a different brand once I finish off what I've got.

I bought 2 boxes of Huggies that both leaked through like crazy recently. I talked to Huggies and they said sounded like I had two dud boxes, which happens time to time. They replaced the boxes for me.
Your other option is go to the next size up. That can fix it sometimes.

We've just had the same problem with huggies they are apparently "new and improved" whatever the improvements they made a lot of people are having issues with them leaking my son is 15kg+ and in the junior size so nothing else to go up to

One option is to double nappy them. I've heard people poke holes in the first nappy with a fork then put another nappy over the top. Get a bigger size for the one over the top. I had to put my DS is the very expensive pull ups for larger kids (not because he wet thorugh but because he was so frikkin huge).
As for the bed wetting, layer the bed for easy of cleaning. So on the mattress you would have a plastic backed fitted sheet followed by one or two layers of towel (for absorbancy) then a regular fitted sheet, then another plastic backed sheet, then another layer of towel then another fitted sheet (how ever many times you can practically do this). This makes bed changing in night very simple because you can just whisk one layer off, pop it in the bath to deal with in the morning and you have the bed already made.

Huggies didn't work for my boys either. We use Coles comfy bots and always put a size larger than usual on them at night. At the moment I have a 10mth old weighing 10kg in the walker size at night! The nappies are big on him but the extra material means they will keep him dry until morning (unless he has extra milk in the night to help settle, then a nighttime change is necessary).

Woolworths Homebrand nappies (not select) have been the best for us (nearly two y/o chubba). And I always make sure her nappy is 100% dry before I go to bed and if she's done a little wee I will change it, she doesn't wake at that time of night and it's better than waking at 4am wet or with nappy rash
