Child's eye color: table
The most interesting thing for future parents is to think whether a girl or a boy will be born, whose little nose and what eyes it has - blue like a mother's, brown like grandfather's, or maybe green, like that of great-grandmother? With the sex somehow simpler, on ultrasound, if my mother wants, with a high degree of probability will say who will be born, and what about the color of the eyes? After all, you can not wait to imagine how a baby will be born! With the appearance of everything is not so simple, but the "mirror of the soul." We can assume the color of the child's eyes. A table for determining the shade of the iris exists and will help in this.
Eyes of the newborn
What will be the color of the eyes of the crumbs, is laid in the first trimester of pregnancy, more precisely to its end, on the eleventh week. But almost all babies without exception are born with blue-gray-purple eyes, only occasionally there are dark-eyed newborns. This does not mean that the color will not change. Approximately to a year, sometimes even to three-five, eyes become such what their nature conceived, or, if want, what genes prevail at the kid. The color of the eyes changes for the child just in this period of life, starting from 6-9 months. Only in brown-eyed he will become permanent in the first months. It happens that the baby is born with different eyes. This phenomenon occurs in about one percent of cases of a hundred and is called heterochromia.
Melanin, who is responsible for the color of the peephole and stands out when the light hits, is simply not produced in the maternal tummy. This explains why all the newborn irises are the same. So, do not torment yourself, trying to see the color of the eyes of your beloved. Have patience, soon you will see what kind of baby he has.
Eye color in a child and genetics
Many remember how in the lessons in biology they said that the brown eye color dominates the others. This, of course, is true, but even if the eyes and moms and dads are like that, there is still a small chance to give birth to a green-eyed child or with a blue iris color. So in the direction of jealousy, turn on the brain and begin to understand why, what and why. It's not a secret that some couples break up just because a brown-eyed child is born to brown-eyed parents.
Of course, relying on science, you can understand the genetics. After all, it is she who gives an answer to the question about what color of eyes the child will have. There is Mendel's law, according to which the eyes, like hair, are inherited by the principle of predominance of genes responsible for dark color. Gregor Mendel - a monk scientist more than a hundred years ago discovered this law of inheritance. For example, in dark parents and children, with a high probability, they will be the same, and in light - on the contrary. A child born from a different phenotype of people can be average in color of hair and eyes - between both. Naturally, there are exceptions, but this is rare.
Determination of eye color
Everything described above can be presented in the form of a table. According to her, each is supposed to determine the color of the baby's eyes.

baby's eye color
It is easy to understand what the color of the child's eyes will be. The table according to which this can be done is confirmed by Mendel's law, but all the same exceptions to the rules remain in the form of a small percentage. As nature will dispose, nobody knows.
Incidentally, the fact that dark color is dominant at the gene level has led to the predominance of brown-eyed people around the world. According to some reports, the child's bright color in the future will not be found at all.
The most interesting thing about the color of the iris
According to scientists, there were no blue-eyed people ten thousand years ago. In all, having such a shade of iris, one ancestor, according to researchers.
Green eyes have fewer people than any other. Due to the fact that only every fiftieth inhabitant of the globe has this shade, they were burned at the stake at different times and by different peoples, then they were praised and treated with reverence, giving witches abilities in either case. And brown-eyed and today you hear that they have a bad eye and they can jinx someone.
Among the various variations of the three main shades of the iris, it is very rare to see people with eyes red from blood vessels. Although they look unpleasant and even scary, they are not to blame for being born albinos. Melanin, due to which the irises of the eyes differ in color, are practically absent in such people.
Eyes - a mirror of the soul
And another interesting fact, someone paid attention to it, some do not, but the color of the eyes of most, if not all, of light-eyed people varies depending on the mood, well-being, clothes color, in stressful situations.
Not an exception and the color of the child's eyes. The table above does not tell us about this, and there are no specific rules here. All individually. Basically, when the hunger is hungry, the eyes become dark. He wants to sleep and gets upset - become muddy. If crying, the color is closer to green, and when everyone is happy - to the blue. Maybe that's why they say that the eyes are the mirror of the soul.
Many parents of the future baby and their relatives try to determine the color of the child's eyes. A table created for this helps them, of course. But it's more important that a baby is born healthy. And it is much more interesting to watch how the baby will change and what its eyes, nose, hair will look like, and not know in advance. The baby will grow up, and you will see whether it is light-eyed or vice versa.
