Do all babies have blue eyes at first?
Many babies will have light-colored eyes at first, but iris color continues to develop for months after birth. Some babies may be born with blue eyes, but others are born with brown or hazel eyes. In fact, blue eyes may be a little less common than you think.
Do black babies have blue eyes?
First of all, it’s definitely not true that all babies are born with blue eyes. Babies of African American, Hispanic and Asian descent are usually always born with dark eyes that stay that way. This is because these non-white ethnicities naturally have more pigment in their skin, hair, and eyes.
Can brown eyed parents have a blue-eyed baby?
Brown (and sometimes green) is considered dominant. So a brown-eyed person may carry both a brown version and a non-brown version of the gene, and either copy may be passed to his children. Two brown-eyed parents (if both are heterozygous) can have a blue-eyed baby.
Can GREY eyes turn blue?
Gray eyes may be called “blue” at first glance, but they tend to have flecks of gold and brown. And they may appear to “change color” from gray to blue to green depending on clothing, lighting, and mood (which may change the size of the pupil, compressing the colors of the iris).
What color will GREY baby eyes turn?
If your child is born with gray eyes they may stay light or actually turn hazel or brown during the course of your child’s first year of life. It’s part of what makes being a parent so much fun.
When can you tell what color a baby’s eyes will be?
Permanent eye color is not set until a baby is at least 9 months old, so wait until your child’s first birthday to determine what color they will be. Even then, sometimes you may find little surprises. Subtle color changes can still occur all the way up until about 3 years of age.
