You definitely do NOT need to worry, she's probably just very cautious and is not willing to do anything that she isn't 100% ready to do. My daughter didn't walk until she was 19 months and previous to this, I had taken her to the doctor and to the chiropractor, just to make sure that nothing was wrong and of course nothing was. But all the children that I know who walked at one year old or a little after...they fall, they fall a lot and somehow they normally hit their heads doing it. :S But since my daughter began walking at 19 months - she has NEVER fallen and now even runs! My daughter is the type that refuses to do anything until it's her idea so please don't worry about your cutie - she'll do it when she's ready. :)

I would say maybe not quite yet. I am in nursing school and we are currently studying this in my Pediatrics class and you should actually not get worried till she's about 2 yrs old. Is she pulling up to tables, etc.. and walking that way? Will she walk with your assistance? If not, maybe you should encourage this.
