Kids in Bosnia

One of the biggest things I'll miss about Sarajevo and Bosnia in general, how wonderful the people are here with children.

Sarajevo is definitely a good place for a family with little ones. There are at least 5 indoor playground locations here as well as an indoor water/pool complex. Kids are accepted everywhere and if you're out in public and your kid starts crying, locals will ALWAYS try to help, talking to the baby, even wanting to hold the baby. A good example of how kind and caring they are with little ones here is my weekly trip to the local farmer’s market. My 3-year old comes with me every time and without fail, she gets some free food (and this from vendors who can neigh afford to give). 

We are so spoiled here that it always comes as a culture shock when we go back to America and no one coo's or ahh's at our little one's and people seem to get visibly upset when they cry. I don't know of any other country with such accomodating people to children, its wonderful!

I found that was true in Costa Rica as well.

It is wonderful that you are exposing your little one to other cultures. She is so blessed!
