Some kids are barely speaking at all and others are speaking paragraphs and carrying on conversations with adults. Both ends of the spectrum CAN be normal, but if your 2 year old is not saying close to 50 words and starting to string 2-3 words together... it is, imo, worth speaking to the doctor about since speech issues are better caught earlier than later.

Every child is different. On average, they should be speaking about 50 words, and also starting to string one or two together, BUT every child is different. They understand a lot more words than they can speak.
