    As with most baby's it can vary, but according to "What to expect in the first year"

    The eye colour can go through a number of changes before becoming set between 3 and 6 months, or even later. The book goes on to say that pigmentation of the iris may continue to increase during the entire first year, and the depth of the colour may not be clear until around the first year.

    So in other words your baby's eye might turn green at around 6 months, but what shade of green they actually end up being may not be set until much later.

    Hope that helps.

    Most of the time they say between 6 months to a year, but not always. My eyes are a greenish color, and they didn't change until I was atleast 7. My son had blue eyes until he was 5 and they started getting flakes of the same color that my eyes are and he's almost 10 and they are still slowly changing to the color that I have. For us it's a very long process. I remember having blue eyes and now they are far from that color.

    Although eye color can change for up to 18 months, it usually takes place in the first 6 months.

    Babies eyes can change any time within their first 15 months. Most likely if your child's eyes are blue at a year old then they will stay. But they can change any time.

    Around 6 months but can take up to a year

    They will probably stay that way or at least some variation of the color (they may lighten or darken some) but chances are good they will remain the same color,

    If they havent changed by now they probably will not. Babies eyes will normally change colour within the first 6weeks if they are going to.
