The original Always on My Mind AppleCheeks charity exclusive from Calgary’s Nature’s Baby Basket (NBB) was released in 2015 when I was a newcomer to the city. I remember seeing it pop up in my Facebook newsfeed, and all I paid attention to was the cause: mental health awareness. SOLD!
I ordered a size 1 for Little Miss, and when it arrived I was surprised to see the return address was just a short drive north from my house. This was cause to celebrate: I had a local cloth diaper retailer! Well, technically I had a local online diaper retailer … till I met up with owner and all around awesome woman Sonja at an AppleCheeks fan party last spring, and she told me she was opening a brick and mortar location. Now I pop into Nature’s Baby Basket in Brentwood about once a month. If you ever receive a shipment from them in a box that was previously addressed to Maman Loup’s Den, that’s because I keep all the packaging material I receive and bring it to Sonja and her shipping ninja Lesley to reuse. This is both one of the 3 Rs and an excuse to see if I need to add a new MiniZip to my collection, get my sling untwisted or let my daughter amuse herself by taking every single item off the shelf.
Sonja let me in on a little secret a few weeks back: she has a NEW AppleCheeks Charity Exclusive Diaper called Always On My Mind 360, and she just revealed it to you on Facebook, so now I have the green light (get it?!) to tell you about it too!
Sonja designed the original Always On My Mind (AOMM) “to break down the barriers and stigma surrounding mental health.” With AOMM retiring, she decided to keep the conversation going with Always On My Mind 360 (AOMM 360). This new colour—Pantone colour #360—is here to symbolize “360 degrees of mental health support, awareness and perspective in our communities with a brilliant boost of green!”
Proceeds from the sale of AOMM 360 will go to two great causes: the Calgary chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association and the Alberta Children’s Hospital for brain and mental health research programs.
It’s hard to capture the exact green of AOMM 360, so while I was in NBB last week, I took a few comparison shots for you along with other AppleCheeks prints and solids:
AOMM 360 is available in store and online in the following products:
- Size 1 & 2 Cover … $21.99
- Size 3 Cover … $26.99
- One Size Cover … $25.99
- MiniZip … $12
- Size 1 Sac … $16.99
- Size 2 Sac … $25.99
Since it’s retiring, AOMM Original is now discounted:
- MiniZip $9
- Size 1 Sac … $13
- Size 1 Cover … $15
- Size 2 Cover … $17

Note that the original AOMM was never made as a one-size cover.
