Have you tried using the day diaper that works best for you with a sposie or similar insert for additional absorption?

We have the same problem. My 4.5 month old weighs about the same & will wake up with his clothes wet in front while the back of the diaper is dry. I tried going up a size in diapers, but it only helped a little. I’m going to try Sposie booster pads next:
For a long time, I would go in whenever I passed because you could reliably buy cheap and surprisingly effective booster pads there. They were sized width-wise for baby diapers obviously but that actually helped because I could put two side by side through the crotch of my diaper and they would form a V shape, avoiding the typical stuffer problem of bulking up over the leak guards.
You can still get the very same boosters today from Amazon. The brand name has changed and the price has more than doubled 😢 but they're still there: [link]
AFAIK, they're made by Select, the same people who make Tranquility diapers and they have that very same high SAP, low fluff consistency that gets super thick and squishy when wet 😊
I also used to buy cloth prefold baby diapers there for the same reason - cheap and effective boosters for cloth diaper times...
I’ve had to use these booster pads in my daughters nighttime diapers since she was a few months old, plus cloth diapers for protection (we used the cheaper LBB brand from amazon).

I'm having the same issue with my 4mo old. I've tried a ton of different diapers. Next I'm trying these diaper inserts. Sposie Booster Pads Diaper Doublers, 30 Pads [link]
I've also been told you can do two diapers... Eg their normal size and one of the next size up over the top
They make diaper doublers for this purpose - they are basically sanitary pads without the waterproof backing. They work beautifully for our heavy wetter/deep sleeper, although depending on what size diapers your LO is in it might be cheaper to double up on diapers and just fold down the front and back of the inner one.
We did the same when my son went through a phase of peeing A LOT at night. I think he was in size 3's at the time. We'd put a size 4 on at night with a diaper booster pad inside. It worked most nights.
Huggies Night Time diapers stopped this problem for us. If that hadn't worked I was going to try these boosters like someone else suggested: [link]
We’ve used Sposie Pads on occasion and they are really helpful. Just add one to whatever diaper your using for extra absorbency.
I can't help with the wetness sensitivity part because we fortunately don't have that problem. I can help with the leaking out of disposables issue though. We have better luck with cloth overnight. Disposables always leak. But I wanted a solution for when we went out of town. Disposable booster diaper pads were the answer. I tried the Babies R Us brand avail. until they run out or close forever, and Amazon sells Sposie brand which is more expensive. Someone in a review mentioned folding them in half to put all the absorbency up front for a boy and while the insert was super soaked and gross honestly, he didn't leak!
We also size up at night and use these booster pads from Amazon booster pads
I used Sposie Booster Pads Diaper Doublers. You might also consider waterproof pads under a blanket that can be easily swapped in the middle of the night.
