Like most developmental milestones, there is a wide range of normal in terms of when a toddler will begin walking. Most toddlers begin walking around their first birthday, but some will continue "cruising" for months before taking off on their own.
While many children take their first steps on their own by about 12-15 months, the pace of development varies widely during the toddler years. This isn’t necessarily a problem as long as other milestones in motor and language/social development are achieved.
As always, talk to your child’s pediatrician if you are concerned.
