What do you do when....

You purchase great diapers for your brother and sister in law's child...and they don't even use them?!!! My sister in law has been fascinated with me cloth diapering. Her dd is exactly a year older than my dd, who is seven months old. Soooo, when they had the big sale on the Haute Pockets Seconds, I ordered some for me and a bunch for her and had them shipped to her directly from Montana's Diaper Store.

This was several months ago.

I talk to her a couple times a week since she lives in Oregon now, and subtly bring cloth diapers into the conversation and ask her if she's tried the diapers yet. She keeps telling me that she wants to try them, but she hasn't gotten the microfiber towels that I suggested she get from the auto section at Walmart.( The HP seconds didn't come with inserts )

How hard is it to walk over to that aisle while you are in Walmart and pick up a package!?

I could really use those diapers, but I wanted to get her a good stash started with them, and now she isn't even using them! Would you ask for them back if she isn't going to use them? Would you offer to buy them from her at the seconds price? Would you trade her HPs for some of your diapers that are too big for your dd that she won't need to use inserts with? Or would you leave it alone and forget the fact that there's all of those cute HP seconds sitting in an apartment in Oregon not being used?

Sorry for the long post.

Wanted to add that I dearly love my brother and sister in law. This is the only gripe I have with them.
