With the bad prefolds, do the hottest, longest, most heavy-duty wash you can do, with bleach.  There's bacteria in there causing the ammonia.
 
You might need to do something similar to your...

I like Blueberry pockets, though I would go with the bamboo insert rather than the microfibre. 
 
I also like Thirsties covers for prefolds, so if their pockets/AIOs are anything like the covers,...

DD was 8 lbs 2 oz when she was born, but was probably nearly a pound lighter when she came home from the hospital and started with cloth.  Honestly, I didn't have any newborn sized diapers.  I had...

You might want to try the Tide on your diapers.  I know a lot of people say that that's what works best for them.  I also agree with Cristeen that you can divide the detergent between the two...

I have an HE top-loader too.  :)
 
Your diapers probably just aren't clean enough, hence the underlying scent of poop. 
 
My first thought is that the cold wash probably isn't doing much.  It...

Maybe your DS had strong urine?  I haven't had that problem with DD unless she got a lot of pee on the cover.  If it was just touching a wet diaper, that was okay, but if somehow she managed to pee...

http://www.clothdiapertrader.com is my favourite place to buy used diapers, and there are a lot of Canadians on it!

I, too, have a baby that's smaller than the size guide, but is pretty much out of the "one-size" diapers.  It's frustrating because it means I have to do more diaper shopping!  (Okay, I love diaper...

I'm a big fan of Bummis.  We trifold prefolds and lay them in the cover.  Easy peasy.
