BG Dazzle dark color pre-wash warning?

I recently got a brand new Dazzle BG Freetime in the mail from Cottonbabies. It had a sticker on it with a warning to pre-wash dark colors 6 times before washing it with other diapers. This seems really excessive to me. I can't imagine the color would bleed that much. I have gotten Ribbit and Albert Flips brand new, and they didn't carry the same warning, nor did they bleed.

Has anybody had experience with Dazzle diapers bleeding their purple color in the wash? I washed mine once today in a load of dark clothing, and didn't see any color bleeding. Any reason why I shouldn't go ahead and put it in my dipe rotation now?

All the dark colors used to come with the warning. I've never had one bleed, but some have. I just throw a Shout color catcher in the first wash with it included to cover my bases.

I didn't have any bleeding on mine.... I've seen bleeding with Zinnia though But I've also never gotten a "warning" (or at least not one that I noticed).

I've never gotten a dark color warning with my Dazzles or any of my BGs for that matter. I prewashed normally with no bleeding issues. If you're worried, a color catcher can't hurt!

Same, I never had a warning on mine, nor did it bleed. Maybe they're using a different fabric now? 6 x does sound excessive to me.

I only have light colored Freetimes, but my 4.0 dazzle didn't bleed and I just got it and washed it for the first time on Friday. It didn't come with a warning, though.
