There's been something bugging me for a while...
We know that Naruto has been alone pretty much all of his life and that he kinda took care of himself, in his own appartement and all, but...
PS: Who is paying for all this stuff... the appartement, the food, and all... Was that Sarutobi?
At least, from 0 to 3 years, someone had to take care of him...
In the world of the ninja, 4 years old are already mature enough to take care of themselves (some 4-5 years old were already chunnin so...)
But, before that, someone had to take care of baby Naruto, right?
So, who was it?
My vote go for either :
2. An orphanage
I think he payed for the stuff, but he was certainly not the one to change the diapers
If the Hokage would have been taking care of the baby, people would have known, so he's probably not the one.
Most likely the one...
There were so many orphan after the attack that it was the perfect place to hide baby Naruto.
Mikoto taking care of Naruto would be my favorite just because that would be so coincidential!
And it wouldn't be impossible, since she was shown to be one of Kushina's friends.
I said it before, but the image of Naruto and Sasuke being breastfed by Mikoto at the same time is just too funny (and that would make a great cover page for a chapter! )
In any case, that would make Naruto and Sasuke even more like "brothers", so I think it's a possibility..
Although, seeing that the Uchiha are kinda blamed for the attack, it would be kinda strange to have one of them taking care of the new Jinchuriki (although she probably wouldn't know...)
What do you guys think?

I think the sarutobi household took him under his shoulder for a couple of years.Its not necessary Sarutobi Hiruzen to be the one changing the diapers.
I think Sarutobi would have an obligation to take care of Naruto or at least help who ever was taking care of him. Naruto is the Jinchuriki of the Hidden Leaf whether good or bad he is an asset.
The real question is:
"Who took care of Naruto as a baby and abandoned him afterwards?"
I still think that this was unnecessary torture for a little child, because of some selfish adults >.>
I vote orphanage. I think if he had foster parents or whatever it's likely he'd have been staying with them at the start of the story when he was 12 and still in the Academy, but he was already living alone. He's never shown to be close to any adult until Iruka, either so :/
Well I guess it'll get cleared up soon. I wonder how Sandaime knew Minato/Kushina wanted to name him "Naruto" though, since they only told (or were only shown telling) Jiraiya. And another thing that bothers me is the "Uzumaki" thing. If they wanted to hide the fact he was Minato's son, using his wife's surname isn't exactly any better ><
I would like to see Itachi taking care of Naruto until a certain age. Itachi was Black Ops so he could keep an eye on Naruto at all times upon orders from Sarutobi... I still think Hiruzen took care of him, but due to circumstances that Kishi will have to explain Naruto was left alone.
Agreed with me. Plus, one cover suggest that maybe Naruto and Sasuke as babies were together <you know, it can be just a cover of fanservice, but it can be as well telling as it was like that until it will be revelaed next/next chapter/s xd>Originally Posted by THM Nindo
Hehe, when i saw Kushina talking about pregnancy with Mikoto in the spoilers, i thought Mikoto was at the hospital and we would see Sasuke and NAruto in the same crib. But it only came as cover.
I hope to see Mikoto taking care of baby Naruto since babies need to be breastfeeding in the first 6 months. But i think Sarutobi won't tell her or he will forbid her to tell anyone who are the parents of the baby.
i think it's someone we don't.After all we don't much of naruto's life after that kyuubi inceident.Maybe it's someone sarutobi hired.
I think it's most likely Hiruzen with maybe help for breastfeeding or stuff like that from an assistant but although i understand they wanted to keep it secret recent chapters make me feel like hiruzen basically let the whole village hate naruto without even trying to remind them he saved them and basically abandoned the kid at age four i mean i know he wanted to keep it secret but but is ruining any happiness for a kid really protecting him? i just want to know what happened cause someone had to have raised him at some point and must have had a motive for leaving him in an appartment. I also don't understand why they kept that he was the fourths son a secret I mean foreign threats or whatever but what village members are gonna kill the fourths son also did the villagers really believe the fourth kidnapped some random baby and sealed the ninetails inside of it cause that makes no sense

I vote Konoha
Since he has no foster parents, he lives in a what the hell hole. So most likely he has been in konoha streets since he is a child.
I vote for the owner of the Ramen Store
Naruto always feels comfortable there
Someone suggested that it could be Sakura's parent that take care of him or something like that...
If Kishi wants to play the brother/sister thingy with them, that would be possible, but giving that we never saw them, I'm pretty sure that's not the case...
Regarding them though, we might had clue of what they're doing in the last colored spread : http://mangastream.com/read/naruto/33928369/2
Notice that milk?
Doesn't that look like the Haruno crest on it. (Okay, I guess it's simply a circle )
Regarding who took care of Naruto, we can hope to have the answer in a few days...
BTW, for those who voted for "Others", please explain who you think it was!!
Mikoto and it sopped after she was killed. Narutos age was 5-6.
Thats a possibility.
