eye color changing

ok so my son is 5 months old and has blue eyes everyone tells me they might turn brown.
i heard that whatever the color is when they are 6 mo old is the color it will stay (generally i know some peoples eyes change with their mood)
is that true?

  • My eyes look different shades of blue depending on what I'm wearing; (which may connect to moods; but IDK) -- but with both my girls I was never "for sure" what their eyes would be til they were almost 1 youngest I really really thought would stay blue but they didn't & she's 18 mos and I think her's are darkening still...

  • I have also heard that usually by six months they are pretty much the color they are going to be.

  • It might be true for the majority of people but was not true for me. My eyes changed to various colors throughout my childhood and into adulthood. They're now mostly hazel and sometimes they're very green. My mom has a picture on the wall of me of pictures each year K-12th grade. My eye color is wildly different in each picture lol.

    I'm with you. My son has blazing gorgeous blue eyes and I hope they stay that way!

  • No not true. The majority of children's eyes usually change even into toddlerhood. BTW at 6 months my son had clear bright blue eyes, he is 3 now and has hazel brown eyes. He obtained the hazel brown eyes at about the 2 1/2 yr mark.

  • My daughter had blue eyes until she was four year old. Then her father and I divorced and it was really rough. Her eyes turned green! They still sometimes look blue but if you look close they are definitely green.

  • my 2 year olds eyes changed from blue (at 6 months) to hazel (at 9months til now). My 4 month old daughter has gray/green/blue/brown eyes mixed together. Im sure hers will change eventually too but idk, babies eyes can be weird i guess :)
