Toddlers often range in chattiness. Some talk nonstop, others are a little more shy or quiet.

In either case, kids develop at varying paces. Some hit the important milestone of speech before others, but research indicates that at any rate of development, there are at least 25 words your toddler should be able to say by age 2.

The Child Study Institute at Bryn Mawr College suggests that these 25 words represent the minimum number. Their research states that the average vocabulary for a toddler is around 75 to 225 words with phrases. However, the following words are a list of the most important words your toddler should be saying:

  1. all gone
  2. baby
  3. ball
  4. banana
  5. bath
  6. bye bye
  7. book
  8. car
  9. cat
  10. cookie
  11. daddy
  12. dog

  19. mommy
  20. more
  21. no
