  • I believe by around 6-8 months of age, whatever color they are they will stay that color! My older son's eyes turned from blue green to brown within 4-5 months. My younger son's turned blue to brown at around 8 months.

  • My boys all had blue from the very beginning.

    I have heard of some still changing past a year of age. If not in true color, in shade.

  • Usually once your child is 6 months of age, then, that's the color that they will have. Although, in some cases, they can change slightly. Gosh, my eye color actually changed when I was 20 yrs. old. I had dark brown eyes and now they're very light brown and turn yellow in the sun and green when I cry. So strange. LOL But yeah, after 6 months.
