When will I know…

My 8 month olds eye color

I was curious how long will a baby’s eye color change? When do you know they are the color they will stay?

I ask because My husband has Hazel eyes. I have brown and our baby has blue grey eyes and she is 8 months… Should I be expecting them to still change?

Thanks helpful Mommas!

this is from babycenter.com

Babies of African and Asian descent are usually born with brown eyes that stay brown. Caucasian babies are often born with steel gray or dark blue eyes; they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time they're 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she's born, but they won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes actually have more pigment than grey or blue eyes, even if they appear lighter in color.)

DH has brown eyes and I have bluish green...so I think our little guy's eyes will be brown (eventually) but I have to keep explaining to DH that they will be blue to begin with....lol
