Eye color when can you tell...?


with my son i knew his eyes where brown from the first month
it was soooo easy !

with my daughter i have no idea?

they are still blue at the moment but somedays kinda dark blue also so does that mean they will turn brown ?

when a baby has green eyes are they blue in the begining and then turn green?

does any one have any idea?

Emma's slowly got a lighter and lighter blue over time. I'm not 100% sure hers are to her permanent color yet but they seem like they would be. She started out with a dark grayish blue and they were quite cloudy looking and now they are a pretty bright blue color. I'm not sure about green eyes but mine are hazel and my mom said they were dark almost black at birth.

Alex's eyes were always very dark blue and turned brown at about 10 weeks. I found this chart - don't know how accurate it is but it's fun to see what your baby's eye colours could be. I haved brown eyes and OH has green eyes. x

My husband is Japanese and has dark brown eyes but EVERYONE in my family has blue eyes but we still new that the baby wouldn`t have blue eyes.

He had grey eyes at birth but they were a medium brown by 6 weeks but they still have grey rings around them. Full Japanese babies are born with black or brown eyes and they stay that way.

I think that they say that after one year that is the permanent colour- that is not to say your daughter hasn`t already reached her permanent colour already!

Another Alex here.... Grey eyes from birth, but they do seem to be getting progressively darker and warmer (so I think that they will turn). It depends on the light too.... sometimes they still look grey...

But eyes can continue to change for many years, by about a year or two they should be fairly well settled.

Alex's daddy is Chinese: so similarly likely to end up with brown eyes, BUT we know a number of half Chinese children (one at 3 and one in his teens) who still have blue/grey eyes, so it is possible... (BUT I do think Alex's will turn...)

My first daughter had blue eyes from birth and they got lighter and more vibrant as she got a litlte older. Now she's almost 18 and her eyes greeny blue (her dad had blue eyes and I have green)

Evie's eyes were a really dark grey, almost a slate colour at birth and have turned brown over the last few months, altho sometimes they look like they have a very dark tinge of green in them. Evie's daddy has very dark brown eyes.

If your baby's eye colour is going to change it happens by or at around 9/10 months.

My baby has blue eyes at the moment. I have blue and hubby has brown. It is perfectly possible she will have blue forever, despite brown being the dominant colour, as my husband's mother has green eyes which are on the blue spectrum and if he has passed on the blue gene to Bella (I can only have passed on blue as I only carry blue due to having blue eyes) then she will remain blue-eyed. Personally I think they will end up brown, though.

My 2nd son was born with very dark blue eyes, when you looked at him, you couldnt tell where the line was between the pupil and the iris, they stayed dark blue till he was about 18 months old then changed to brown, nice dark colour brown too. I have 2 boys with blue eyes, 1 with brown, we are guessing what colour our dd is going to have, as hers are dark blue at the mo too.
