Hello shilpa ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Please consult a paediatrician for your daughters problem of walking as she needs to be investigated for the reason why she has got delayed walking and standing as at her age children start to walk easily.As you said she has minor start of rickets which should not affect her so badly and there should be some other reason like weakness of muscles(muscular dystrophy) or any neurological problem.Please consult a paediatrician and discuss with him the problem and course of treatment.
