I think the idea is (with natural fibers at least) that the prepping process is to get the natural oils out of the fabric. If you wash with your already prepped diapers, you may embed them with some if the oils from your new diapers. That said, I don't ever separate new dipes, especially of its just one or two. If I got a ton of new diapers, I might wash them separately. But it's not necessary. Normal washing will get all those pesky oils out eventually. I've never noticed it, but you may get reduced absorbency for a short while. Don't worry mama, you didn't ruin anything!
