Question Tips on walking

My daughter Chloe is 19 months old and has been taking her first few steps for while now. But we can't seem to get her to go for it and start walking. Any suggestions??

Talking Re: Tips on walking

Hi,
We got our son to walk by getting a toddler shopping cart, we put a few cans good in the basket, reason for that was so it would not roll fast and he was able to keep up the pace of pushing the cart and walking at the same time. We had a wonderful physical therapist who came from childrens hospital twice a week, she would teach us things to work on daily, that was one of her ideas and it worked.
