My daughter's 3.5 and she's only recently started interacting with other young kids. She still won't talk to them (except for her brother and cousin). Certainly no friends to speak of.

My 2yo has none! DD talks about kids she plays with at day care but doesn't socialize with them outside of that. Her friends are kids of our friends & mothers group & cousins. I would have thought that was the norm?
It's parallel play up until 3 anyway isn't it?
Your LO is definitely not missing out!

My 2 yo can't even say his own name let alone make "friends".. Loves his cousin and doesn't beat up the mothers group kids (plays nice) but I just don't think he makes the association of friends

None that I know of. But there is always someone calling his name out when i drop him off at childcare. I think he is too young to understand friends.

None. 2 yr old don't normally have the developmental ability to form strong friendships. They play with whoever is available at the time.

My 4th is 2.
Ask her and she has eleventy million friends. Ask any of them and they'd stare at you oddly.
Her friends are random people she meets in playgrounds and never sees again or her siblings friends who like her but mainly because she's a cute 2 year old.
No she has no friends.

My 2 year old has 4 friends. He happily plays with anyone though. He only has a close relationship with these 4 kids because we still catch up for mothers group regularly, have swimming lessons together on weekend, monthly dinner with the dads and go for weekends away. Long story short these 4 children are as close (if not closer) than most cousins

Where does a 2 year old meet 'friends'? Apart from daycare and the parents friends kids and mothers group, (where they really have no choice) how would a 2 year old have proper friends??

No friends his quiet close to his cousin who is 8 months younger then him and plays with kids at daycare but has certainly not formed close friendship and at this age I wouldn't be loosing any sleep over it. Friendships form when they are older.
