When did your baby's eyes settle on a color?

DS is 11 weeks and has the most beautiful dark blue eyes. Will they likely stay blue or turn hazel like the rest of us? When did your nb's eyes stay one color?

Re: When did your baby's eyes settle on a color?

My brown eyed girls eyes were a darker blue than ds's eyes as babies. They started having brown spots at like 6 weeks and 2 months and settled on totally brown around a year. My ds eyes were lighter than my oldest eyes from the start but they took a while to settle on the shade of green they are now. My dh has green eyes and I have brown but I am surprised my girls's eyes are both so dark. I have light brown eyes and they have dark brown eyes.

Ds kept his dark blue eyes, so far the toddler still has bright blue eyes. But ODD had blue eyes until she was almost 4 and then they turned hazel.

My older son's eyes were blue at birth and never changed. Younger son's eyes were sort of an indeterminate color at birth - sort of a muddy greyish-blueish-brownish - and they finally settled into brown somewhere around 6 months.

Re: When did your baby's eyes settle on a color?

My ods eyes started changing around 2 and finally settled on green(from dark blue) around age 4. My mds had blue-grey eyes at birth and they seem to be picking up some more color to them lately, he'll be 5 in 2 weeks. My yds has dark blue eyes like my oldest did, we'll see what his eventually changes to but he's got awhile.

Re: When did your baby's eyes settle on a color?

All 3 of mine had grey eyes at birth. The first two gradually went from bluish to hazel to brown. The brown started off kind of light, but by about a year to 18months they were the dark brown they are now. My youngest still has hazel eyes now at almost 20 months, but they do seem to be getting darker. I have a feeling they're going to end up being brown.

I believe the actual age that they become permanent is like 6yrs old.
