    i know they can change up to 9 months (i think) ,, but when did you start seeing your LOs eyes change?

    Jarretts rare still blue, i'm really quite fond of blue eyes but i'm expecting them to go brown since that's what colour OHs and my eyes are. Though blue isnt impossible since my mom and MIL both have blue eyes.

    Either way he'll still be gorgeous :cloud9: just wondering when you started to notice eye colour changing

    I heard somewhere it could be upto a year before you see a change in their eye colour. My LO's eyes haven't changed yet, I'm hoping they'll go brown!

    If they're blue now, i really doubt they'll go brown, most brown eyed babies are born with dark blue/navy eyes and although the colour won't settle down for about a year, they'll be pretty similar to what they'll ultimately be quite early on-looks like you'll have yourself a beautiful blue-eyed boy!

    Sophie's are definitely not going to be blue....they started changing in August when she was 5 months actual age, 2 months corrected (ie the age she SHOULD have been if she's been born on her due date!) and they've kept getting darker. They are not quite brown yet but they're like a dark dark greeny greyish colour that looks brown from the sides and in certain lights. I think they are still changing. DH and I both have dark brown eyes and I want Sophie to have brown eyes too!

    they seem quite dark blue most times, but in the light they appear like a much lighter blue if that makes sense .. i wouldn't say they're dark blue or navy, but a little darker than most blue eyes would be

    This is sounding promising my LO has still got blue eyes and they haven't really changed since he was born I want him to keep them. I don't want him to have my eyes I want him to have his dad's they're so much nicer (I have brown eyes but not a good brown)

    This is exactly how I would describe my LO's eyes.
    Her daddy's are blue and mine are brown.
    She looks a lot like me so I would love her to have something that was definitely daddy's.

    Most people say that they won't change now, but when I look online everyone says that they can change anytime until they're 3 years old! :shrug:

    I would LOVE a blue eyed baby. My first son was grey until almost 2 years old and then they went brown, even the dr told me they would stay that color but they still changed. Charlies are still blue and lighter than my first son's were, hubby and I both have brown eyes but I hold out a little hope his eyes might be blue lol

    oh, well maybe they might go green perhaps, somewhere inbetween the brown and blue!:flower:
    Also my LO eyes were never actually blue either, were a very dark grey when he was born!

    Both my sonw were born with bright blue eyes and thy stayed blue, me and their dad both have brown eyes!
    My eldest daughter was born with her brown eyes and my LO was born with blue eyes that have gone greenish over the last couple of weeks, but a real dark green so I think they may go brown!
