At one point I got the extra large bags (magnums) to sleep with; I was able to sleep through the night and I'd switch them out to the regular bags in the morning.
Are you wearing an ostomy belt? I would also sleep with a shirt over my ostomy just as some extra protection and would keep it close to my body.
Do you have an adjustable bed? If I went back to any ostomy I'd probably get an adjustable bed just so that I could position my body better at night.
