How long did your baby's eyes stay blue?

My son is 9 months and his eyes are still really blue. I thought they'd change because no one in my family or my df's family has blue eyes. Mine were blue when I was born but changed to green.

  • I have read and heard that they usually are at thier final color by 8 months, but can change shades of that color until 3 years. My son was born with deep blue grey eyes and they lightened up over time. Hes 17 months now and they are light blue :)

  • Our doc said once they hit 3 years old their eye color is pretty well set, but any time before then it can change. DH and I are both blue and DS is blue, but DD is hazel. After doing some research I found out that because both my mother and MIL had brown we had a 0.5% chance of having hazel/green eyed baby and 0.2% of having a brown eyed baby even though we both had blue.

  • My hubby has dark brown eyes, so I thought for sure my son would have brown eyes, but he's 3 and a half, and they're my blue. I was hoping for brown..maybe this baby will have browns..

  • My oldest has green eyes, but they were blue until he was around 2. My middle son's changed from blue to brown around his 1st birthday. My 4th's eyes changed around a year also.

  • My son has deep blue eyes since birth, He's 13 months now,he got them from me and my side of the family. I hope they stay that way! There's something so magic about his eyes, that everybody is drawn too!
