I have brown eyes and my hubby has blue. My daughter has blue eyes and I was wondering if there was a chance of them changing I don't know when they change. Any color is fine with me just curious.

  • almost all babies are born with blue eyes and they can take up to 2 years to fully change, usually it starts to happen around 6-9 months though. You may carry the blue gene recessively and could have passed it on to her. If either of your parents had blue or green eyes you may have a recessive blue or green gene that will give her blue or green eyes. But if you passed her a brown gene she may end up with brown or hazel eyes. Your hubby probably either carries 2 blue genes or a blue and a green gene so he could have passed on either one of those. Most often babies that are going to end up with blue eyes have really light blue eyes from the start, whereas babies whose eyes are going to end up brown or hazel are a really dark blue from the start. I'm not sure what green eyes start out looking like because all I've ever seen are babies that end up blue, brown or hazel!

  • They could still change.......I have light brown eyes, my DH has green eyes, my oldest son has dark chocolate brown eyes, my middle son has real light blue eyes and my daughter has green eyes that appear to change colors......from blue/gray to green/gray. Anything is possible :)
