does anyone have any tips to get my daughter to walk

If she isn't walking in another month, it is time to take her to a paediatric physiotherapist (MUST be a specially trained paediatric one not a regular one) to have her evaluated because she is at the end of normal range to start walking. However, it is entirely possible there is nothing wrong with her and she just isn't ready. Try to encourage but never push. Pushing her will increase her anxiety. I have seen perfectly healthy kids who didn't walk until they were between 2.5 and 3.

Help her walk ... hold her hands and let go. Have her walk from one adult she trusts to the next - just a few steps ... but some kids don't walk at 19 months .... if she can stand, hold her weight, crawl, sit up ... is interested in getting places, I'd not worry
