Eruption of primary teeth is a very important indicator to assess growth and development of the children. The present research studied the effect of the type of feeding during the eruption time of first primary tooth. Also, number of erupting primary teeth in both males and females up to 12 month in relation to type of feeding has been studied. A total of 100 healthy children (55 females and 45 males) aged between 6-12 month were selected according to cluster random sampling from four primary health care centers in Al-Madinah Al-monawarah, Kingdome of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to participate in this study. Mothers of the children were asked about the type of feeding (Breast or bottle feeding) they practiced for their children, they were asked about the eruption age of the first appearing primary tooth in the oral cavity for their children as well as the number of erupted primary teeth. For breast feeding children, the mean time of eruption for first primary tooth was (7.48±1.64) month, while it was (7.17±1.34) month for bottle feeding with no significant difference, p=0.477. The mean number of erupting primary incisors teeth was lower in group of breast feeding (1.72±1.84) than those in bottle feeding (3.12±2.82) with statistical significant difference (p=0.005). For the whole sample, the mean number of erupting teeth was not affected by the gender. It was (1.98±2.09) for males and (2.15±2.29) for females with no significant difference, p=0.706. Multivariable linear regression analysis demonstrated that, increase in age and bottle feeding were predicators of number of erupted teeth. Breast feeding was found to have no impact on time and number of erupting primary teeth within the first 12 months of life in this group of Saudi children.
