My son only knows a few words like baba, mama, dada, night-night, and bye-bye but his doctor saying he should go to speech therapy because he doesn't know 50 words or saying phrases, but I think babies learn at their own pace and not when the doctor says so. What should I do?

Well you don't say how old he is? Secondly if your doctor is recommending it, I would go with what your doctor thinks. He isn't just saying this for his health. He is generally concerned for your child. Why would you not want to give your child every possible opportunity?
