The 2016 Global Burden of Disease Study estimates that 486 million children worldwide suffer from Early Childhood Caries (ECC), and the World Health Organization estimates that 60-90% of children suffer from caries. Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is a term used for caries that occurs in primary teeth in children under 71 month of age. Some researchers stated that ECC is related to the breastfeeding pattern. This study aims to look at the relationship between breastfeeding patterns with Early Childhood Caries in children aged 2-3 years in the city of Padang.
