    When do babies eye colour change? I was expecting that by nearly 3 months Alex's eyes would have at least started to change colour - my eyes are green and my husband's are brown but Alex's are still a very pale blue??????

    I don't particularly mind what colour they end up I guess I'm just getting impatient to know :rofl: Can you tell when they're starting to change colour or does it just happen overnight?

    I'm not sure, I think it's by around 6 months that they are done changing? But Kathryn's eyes stared as a drak steel color which have gradually lightened and now they are blue.

    They should have their eye colour by 8 months, but they can slighty change after that.

    I really expected Lola's eyes to start getting darker after 6 months but nope. They are still blue and getting even lighter.

    I have dark brown eyes, her dad has blue and apparently she took after him.

    I posted something similair when my baby was first born. I remember someone said that the colour their eyes are on their first birthday is often the colour they will stay. She either said she was an optician or worked in one. I had googled it previously and most places said they could change at any time of life!

    Lucy's eyes have stayed as bright blue as the say she was born, I have bluey green eyes (mainly green i think) and her dad has brown eyes so its anyones guess as to why hers are bright blue!

    They start changing about 6 months but do not reach their absolute final shade until about 3 years. It's exposure to daylight that stimulates the pigments that alter the shade.
