When do babies eyes stop changing color?

DD has had this amazing blend of hazel eye color since she was 9 months old.

First they were blue, then formed a gold ring in the middle. Now they're green with a brown mix. They've been this way for almost 10 months now with NO change in them.

My husband has brown eyes, his dad has brown eyes, but his Mom has blue eyes.

I have gray eyes, my dad has blue eyes, my Mom has gray eyes, but my sister ended up with hazel.

Everyone seems to think DD's eyes are going to stay hazel since it's been so long. What you think? What has your experience been?

  • Most babies eyes change by 1 year. Some will change as late as 2-5 years. If I had to guess I would say your baby's eyes will stay the color they are now.

  • I've always heard by a year, but my neighbors DD's eyes changed when she was almost two. I'm guessing that your DD's eyes will stay the same color. My DS's eyes were a bright blue, got a little deeper at about 6 weeks, and haven't changed since. He's 3 now.

  • Mine was blue till I was around 6 or 7 then they turned Hazel Thats the same way my dads did and when he turned 40 or maybe a little older they turned back blue.. So I dont really Know sorry I couldnt really help But I thought i would add that.. My Boys have about the same color blue eyes I had and I really hope theirs dont change bc they have beautiful eyes :)
