  • Green, Blue, Brown – What Eye Color Will My Baby Have?

What would be my baby’s eye colour?

Will your baby’s eyes stay brown, which many newborn babies are born with, or will they turn blue, or green?
Well, you cannot decide what eye colour your baby would have, but your genes can!

 Baby's eyes

According to experts, baby eye colour is determined by a set of complicated factors. The first thing is the parents’ eye colours. It is also determined by eye colour dominance. Some eye colours are dominant while others are recessive and the dominant colour normally wins.

A theory also states that a brown gene normally dominates green gene, while green gene dominates a blue one.
