leaking in my sleep

Ello, it's my first week using  a small DivaCup. I'm 18 and a virgin. I love it. Within the first couple of days of my cycle are the worst because I usually get very bad cramps and heavy flow, but I haven't felt any bad cramps these past three days. I can happily say that I played soccer comfortably with my nephew. And when I got home there were no leaks. :)

The cup has been fine these past 3 days, but when I wear it at night, it leaks. My flow isn't too heavy, it only reaches to about 2/3 of the cup at most. Last night I woke up at 2 am and there was no leaking so I went back to bed. But when I woke up again at 6, it had leaked! So I'm assuming it's a certain position I'm sleeping in? Or could it be that I'm not suctioning it in right? I've been using the push-down fold, so maybe it could be the fold? Very paranoid about it leaking in school because of senior year and all...

If the leaking in your sleep thing has happened to you, please share how you fixed it! And any tips on better suction is much appreciated. Thank you :)
