Breasts on display in pop culture: socially acceptable.

Breasts used to nurse babies in public: controversial.

Why the divide? Ricki Lake, executive producer of the new documentary Breastmilk, has some thoughts on the matter.

“There are so many forces in our culture that make breastfeeding a huge challenge — not the least of which is a bizarre public anxiety around exposed breasts!” Lake, who also co-produced 2008’s The Business of Being Born, tells PEOPLE.

Timed with National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, the movie is newly available on iTunes and Lake believes it will “definitely make waves with the general public, simply due the fact that breastfeeding has become such a lightening rod topic.”

Talk about a star-worthy playdate!

Last Friday, North West (left, pictured with mom Kim Kardashian) joined a slew of other trendy tots at Gymboree, an indoor children’s gym and playground, in New York City.

And instead of introducing the unmistakable offspring by her famous moniker, a nanny told everyone that her name was actually Samantha!

But that didn’t fool the celeb savvy parents in attendance.

“I just played ball with North West, Kim Kardashian’s #baby and the paparazzi didn’t even find us, wrote FabGabBlog, a fashion and mommy blogger, to caption an Instagram photo of her own adorable toddler.

This Fresh Prince-Themed Baby Announcement Will Make Your Day

05/23/2014 at 02:00 PM ET

Suburban Phoenixville, Pennsylvania may be a far cry from the ritzy Bel-Air — not to mention “West Philadelphia” — but that didn’t stop these two parents-to-be from paying homage to their favorite ’90s sitcom when they wanted to announce their pregnancy to friends and family.

With the help of Merryweather Films, Dayton and Melanie Duncan (who met as freshman at Temple University) recorded their happy baby news as a shot-for-shot remake of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air‘s title sequence.

And we have to admit, the farms and fields of the Phoenixville area are a really fun stand-in for the mansions and palm trees of the original.

To find out how to keep your little ones energized, we tapped Extreme Weight Loss trainer (and dad-of-4!) Chris Powell for his best tips.

Check them out below:

Keep them armed with easy-to-pack snacks. Quick eats full of healthy fats (string, stick or cubed cheeses, almonds, cashews, peanuts and more) are great for on-the-go kids. You can just put them in a small container and stuff them in their backpack.
