I Was wondering, i just had a baby girl, and her eyes look gray. I've seen other babies born with gray eyes and then they change. At what age does the baby's eyes change color?

  • I think around 6 months, give or take a few months, is about normal for the colour to change. Our little girl had pale blue/grey eyes until she was just a month or so after her 2nd birthday, and OVERNIGHT they changed dramatically and suddenly, to dark olive brown/green. It was the weirdest thing: my husband and I looked at her when she came out from her bedroom that morning and just stared, and then looked at each other, like "what the hell?" it was unreal how sudden and dramatic it was... Kinda cool, really. She's 13 now.

  • that varies. a baby's eyes can change up to 2 yrs old. my son was born with grey eyes and his started to turn a dark blue around 6 months. now he's 15 months and his eyes are a beautiful bright blue!!
