    I just did the estimator and put $50k in, it said CCB would be 91.15%. I'm not sure what your circumstances are with work/study, number of days in care etc. Maybe that affects it. You only get CCB for 50 hours a week daycare, which usually equates to four days (12 hours a day), not five, so maybe they meant that you wouldn't get it for the fifth day in care?

    Although getting a boarder/renting a room out works for some, I'd urge you to think carefully about this option. I had someone move in for a while and hated it! I found it disruptive and highly annoying. I now have family staying with me too and although it's a big house I am totally over it after a month! It's much easier and nicer when it's just DS and I. You don't want to add to your stress levels right now.

    It may work for you though! Just saying it is hard to share when you have children.
