In episode 350, we see that the Third Hokage took on to take care of Naruto. But towards the beginning of the anime Naruto is seen to be living alone.

Did Naruto live with the Third? If so, why did he leave there?

"take care of" and "live with" is not the same... –  UwF Feb 21 '14 at 16:28
@UwF Seems hard to take care of a baby without him living at your place. –  Dimitri mx Feb 21 '14 at 16:29
Yeah, you figured it out, the old geezer even invented a new lactation jutsu (人乳術) to physically take care of Naruto... :P –  UwF Feb 23 '14 at 22:44

Third Hokage promised to kushina in her dying breath that he would take care of naruto and he did.

Whole villagers knew that a monster fox was inside Naruto. This news also spread to the other villages. If it weren't for the astute care of the third hokage, Other villagers would have kidnapped naruto and would have absconded him out of konoha.

The Third may not have home sheltered him, but he did keep an eye for Naruto. That is what taking care means.

Besides Iruka and others were there too. But the main role was still played by the Third.

There is no canonical answer for this.

Naruto lived alone as a child.

As for who took care of him while he was a baby, no one knows.

The people that took care of him in his childhood were people like the Sandaime, Iruka, and the ramen guy. However, they did not fulfill the roles of parents. The closest person Naruto had as a parent was Jaraiya.
