    Hi guys, when did your LO's eye colour change? I am half Indian and have brown eyes and my OH is Scottish with bluey-grey eyes.

    Am wondering if her eyes are going to change to brown? I thought there were as at 10 weeks they started getting brown flecks in them and went a greeny colour. But i don't think they have changed since then.

    Are brown eyes dominent? (Its been a while since i have done any biology!) and when did your LO's eye colour change?

    Ta!

    Brown is dominant, but that doesn't mean that cos you have brown eyes ur LO will.

    If ur oh has 'blue' eyes LO will get a blue gene from him.

    You however might not give a brown gene - as you could have a blue gene that is dominated over by ur brown one.

    Also eye colour is affected by more than one gene, so it can be difficult to predict, depending on what grandparents have as well.

    Mine has always had blue eyes, then in the last 3 days they've gone a lovely hazel colour (I have very blue eyes, and hubby has dark brown) I think brown is the dominant gene, I think there are a few combinations where u can get blue eyes tho. Also I read that their eye colour doesn't fix until they are 6 months.
