  • My daughter had a tint of green and she still does and she's already 2 so im assuming she's gonna keep the tint of green they haven't change at all :-)

  • Both my kids were born with dark gray/blue eyes. My daughter was a year before they really changed and turned brown. My son is 9 months and I still can't tell if they are going to be brown like his sister's or more green like mine. Sometimes in the sunlight they look blue. I have no idea what his eyes are going to do lol.

  • My sons eyes went from gray to green to hazel to brown (yes, they all run in the family), I would say a year to be on the safe side.

  • My son was born with bright blue eyes. He is 20 months now and they've just recently started changing to a blueish green color.

  • My babe was born with blue eyes (most are) my husband and I have brown eyes. My doctor said they can change as late as one year. He's now 8 months and they are hazel the dr at his last appt said they'd probably stay that way. Hope that helps!

  • Most babies eyes change around 3 to 4 months, but they say not to get your heart set until the first birthday. My eyes are brown, and my husband's are blue. My daughter's were grayish when she was born, but started turning blue around 2 or 3 weeks. They got lighter, and at her 4 month visit her doc said "Looks like you're stuck with those blue eyes" haha. He says they can still change, but he's never seen them go from light blue at 4 months to brown. His guess was if they changed it would likely just be a different shade or green.
