We studied the influence of parenting on growth and development in toddlers. We used a cross sectional design and the subjects were randomly selected from those hospitalized in Child Health Department of Dr. Soetomo hospital Surabaya from November 1st 2006 to December 31st 2006 using questionnaires and direct observation during the interview. A significant result association between toddler growth (nutritional status) with caregiver and Kartu Menuju Sehat (KMS)was found. There was no significant relationship between toddler growth (nutritional status) with breastfeeding and pos pelayanan terpadu (POSYANDU).Toddler development using Denver Developmental Screening Test II (DDST II) was significantly associated with breastfeeding and not significantly related to KMS, caregiver and POSYANDU. This study shows that toddlers growth was influenced by caregiver and KMS, while the toddler development was influenced by breastfeeding.
