My daughter is 2 1/2 and we finally think her eye color is definite... well maybe. I have (just like many in my family) eyes that are green and gray-blue and look either green or blue depending on mood and shirt color. My daughters eyes are blue on the outer edge, green in the middle and each have a small brown dot that is only noticeable if you look closely. Her eyes began changing before she was 6 months and when the brown spots appeared we thought for sure they would turn brown like daddy's, but they haven't yet.

My son is 4 months and his eyes are already changing. They are green in the middle and blue on the outer edge but both colors are so dark I wouldn't be surprised if they turn brown.



In general the change typically happens before one year but can keep changing up until 3-4 years in some children.

My daughter's settled on their hazle-brown color when she was around 18 months. They first started to darken around 12 months.



My son however, is 3 1/2 months and his eyes are already starting to shift.



Both my husband and I think that our daughter has the blue eye gene from his father and that our son doesn't.

My boy took months, can't remember exactly when, but we'd got to the point where we assumed they'd stay blue. They're kinda greeny brown now.

How do you know they'll be brown ;)



It takes about a week if I remember correctly, maybe two. My daughters eyes were black as coal and then changed to a light blue.
