Baby blue eyes???

I always thought babies who are caucasian were born with blue eyes...but my five day old son seems to have brown eyes. Is that an urban myth sort of thing, or is he just weird? lol.

  • My DD's were dark dark grey, but they looked brown and have since turned dark brown.

  • My mom just reminded me that we have Native American further down the blood line...but I didn't think it was prominent enough to make a difference. It is cute though, and thanks!

  • It's an urban myth. My son was born with his dark brown eyes. He's 3/4 white and 1/4 Filipino. My daughter (same dad) was born with green eyes that changed to brown when she was 18 months old.

  • i guess its a myth...ive never heard it before. my brother was born w/ his super dark brown eyes and as far as i know we only have a very small amount of Native American in us (my dad's dads mom). im pretty sure my mom was born w/ her dark brown eyes too.

  • Most are born with blue eyes but it's not 100%.
    My older 2 and youngest were born with bright blue eyes but my middle daughter had dark gray eyes when she was born. They were never blue and were brown by the time she was a couple months old.
