Baby has blue eyes at 3 months can they still turn brown? AllieKat89 USA 13 posts
24th Jun '09

Well, I have a baby boy who will be 3 months next week. Since he was born he's always had blue eyes and it really doesn't seem like they're changing at all. I have dark brown eyes (and so does everyone in my family) and my boyfriend has green eyes (everyone in his family has blue). I am hoping that his eyes change to brown but I keep hearing they will prob. stay this color. I am just really disappointed because my child looks NOTHING like me and people don't even think he's mine :( I know ppl say blue eyes are beautiful but I always pictured having a child that had brown eyes like mine and looked like me :( I feel like I ruined my body (my thousands of purple stretch marks, legs, breasts, stomach) and i am extremely depressed that my body is forever ruined and I have a child that no one thinks is mine. I feel like I'm not as close to him because i feel like he's someone else's child. Does anyone else feel like this? Did anyone else have a baby who had blue eyes at 3 months and then have them change to brown? please help :(

supposedly there is a chance they wont change till a year or so.
my doctor said that my daughters eyes are so blue she'd be surprised if they changed.

They can take up to a year to get to their actual color.

Babies eyes can change at any time from birth to the age of 2 years. At the age of two it is not likely they will change, the shade my vary slightly, but the overall color will remain.

My LO has blue eyes at 4mos. No one else in our family has blue except my dad. Mine and DH are brown and my 2 sons are brown. I figure hers will change, but it doesn't look like they will.

When my daughter was born she had ocean blue eyes, but mine are grey/blue and her daddys are light brown so i figured theyd change, and by the time she was 3 months they did. now she has her daddys exact eye color (:

Sooo if my baby is 14 months and his eyes are still blue then they are probably going to stay that way?? I hope they do because they are gorgous!!

my cousin was born with eyes that were so blue they thought she was blind, neither of her parents have colored eyes nor does her little sister. Her eyes are still colored they are green now and she is 20. Accept your child for who she is and embrace her differences. I have people constantly telling me everyday that my daughter does not look like me and sometimes i take it into offence. I feel like they are trying to say im ugly. I love my daughter no less because i know she came out of me and i dont even care if she doesnt look like me any more, she can have her dads looks, we have a great mom daughter bond even though shes only 7 months. Shes super attached,

my pediatrician said if they are going to change they will do it within the first 12 months. I have brown eyes, my dh has green and my son has beautiful blue eyes.

I wish I could feel that way about Henry but it just really hurts to have no one think that your child looks nothing like you :( I keep thinking well maybe if he just had my eyes I'd be happy. I WANT to feel closer to my child but I keep looking at him and seeing no one in my family and i don't see myself and it really hurts. My boyfriend was horrible to me during pregnancy and even wanted me to have an abortion and now to know that the guy that wanted me to have an abortion turns out having the child that i sacrificed everything for look like him makes me really upset. I am the ONLY one who even takes care of henry and has to do all the dirty work but now he's happy of course cause henry looks just like him when he was a baby :( how to i overcome this feeling of anger, depression, hopelessness? i really want to feel the same way other mothers do about their babies but this feeling won't go away :(
