sam- I don't know what etiquette books say, but in my family, the invites are straight forward- if it's a diaper shower, it's addressed as such. After being thoroughly embarassed at my first bridal shower, when I got married the second time, the invites went out stating "No lingerie, please".
I see no problem with stating that it's diaper shower. At least everyone knows what's up.
If you are not being treated with love & respect, check your "price tag". Perhaps you have marked yourself down. Its you who tell people what you're "worth" by what you accept. Get off of the "clearance rack" and get behind the glass where they keep all the "valuables"....bottom line is.... "value" yourself more..Repost if you like... You might help someone get off the clearance rack...

I agree with mizbear, sam....make it plain what's needed if there isn't a registry option available! The vast majority of people who would be attending a baby shower would certainly understand the pressing need for the parents of quads to get the things they will need most!!
ETA: Sharon, good idea!
or something like:
Four little darlings we were sent from above, four little darlings to raise and to love...
But this also means four times the pee-pee and poo, and four times the diapers they will quickly go thru!

you're welcome!! I cannot even begin to imagine the incredible experience that your SIL and her DH (your brother or your DH's brother? I can't remember at the moment) have already been thru with their 4 bundles of joy they have been blessed with and the road that awaits them.....but I'll bet any future family gatherings with them and your soon-to-be-here daughter should be a hoot!
