Money would you need to live in CA comfortably. Having 3 preschool aged children. Would you afford to be a SAHM?

At least 100k. With no daycare costs. More if I had to pay childcare.

I don't remeber exactly. U could make about $3000 a month to qualify for WIC and child support assistance programs in CA in general. Even low income areas usually have pools due to how hot it gets out there year round. I was living in San Diego CA and I was lucky if i found a car seat under $100. Maybe that will give you and idea.

Also found this but I'm not sure how accurate it is nor what year this is for.

I would say about 80K and up. Good luck. California is very expensive. I am from there. It's hard to find a decent place to live for under $1000 a month.
