Best covers for newborns? Can I wash them with toddlers pocket dipes?

I am planning on using CPF's for our next baby due in September since they worked well with our son when he was an infant. I used Prorap Classics, but was disappointed since I had some leaking problems. Can anyone recommend other covers for newborns/infants? I think Bummis seem to be pretty popular.

Also, can I wash the covers with my toddlers pocket diapers or do I need to keep things separate?

Thanks for your help!

Oh! I need to know this too!!
My baby is also due in September and I'll be diapering a newborn for the first time! My 2 year old just wears diapers at night now and we just started her in cloth in May. So I'm really new at this!

Somebody HELP us!

We really liked Litewraps in the newborn size. They are roomy and the velcro is really nice non-scratchy stuff.

You can wash them all together. I don't have any personal experiece but I've heard lots of good things about BSWW's.

I used Bummis originals and Bummies SWW with CPFs with my girl for almost 6 months. The originals are day covers only. the BSWWs are pretty good. I never had any leaks from pee only on either of these covers BUT I will say that when DD had some BF poo blowouts, those non-gussetted legs didn't help keep in some of that goo. Some would get on the leg elastics. This happened with blowouts only tho, not just a regular nice old BF curd poo.

the Bummis Polar worked much better at keeping in BF poo. but there'd still be poo on the inside of the cover. I think this is more a function of using prefolds though. No leg elastics = less containment.

Just my
