Will My Babies Eyes Stay Blue?

  • 1 min read

Check out this great article in Parents Magazine about when eye color changes in babies.


A: Hoping your baby's gorgeous blue peepers won't darken? You should know that many babies are born with blue eyes, which may change color (usually becoming darker) over the course of the first year of life. Usually your baby's eye color at 6 to 9 months should be close to the permanent hue. What color your baby's eyes will ultimately be depends on the kinds of dominant and recessive genes she received from you and your husband at the time of conception. Though there are always pleasant surprises, these odds can help you make an educated guess:

  • If both parents have brown eyes, there's more than a 75 percent chance your baby will end up with brown eyes too. • If one parent has brown eyes and the other has blue or green, there's more than a 50 percent chance your baby will get brown eyes.• If both parents have blue or green eyes, your baby is nearly 100 percent likely to have light-colored eyes as well, though green is pretty rare (less than five percent of world's population has them).
