  • Why is it a big deal? There are biracial babies who are light skinned and others who have darker skin.

  • O_o
    I don't understand your concern, really.
    My DS has a very olive complexion and even started off with the typical blue eyes of newborns, but they were dark and stayed dark. My DD is extremely light skinned and had very light blue eyes, and they've stayed a very light color, fluctuating from green to blue to gray...
    So what?

  • she'll be a lil darker than what she is if she tans. im mainly caucasian. my daughter is 60% latin. shes pale next to me even tho we look about the same, but i get some sun once in awhile. she will definately be able to get a darker tan than i ever could.

  • DD is mixed, 1/4 black. She actually born REALLY REALLY dark, jet black hair and everything. And then she got lighter over the next few weeks. She's 5 mos now and has a nice tan color and brown hair. So I think mixed babies just do whatever they wanna do lol. Give her time and she will start changing.
