What we know about the color of the eyes of babies
Hooray! 9 months of exciting waiting behind. Here it is – your happiness, an invaluable gift of fate, looks at you with the child’s curiosity. Sometimes puckers his tiny nose. Well, pouring daddy. And eyes are mother’s, blue like a summer sky. Although, why mothers? What kind of eyes a little miracle nobody knows.
But statistics maintains that most newborns, oddly enough, have blue eyes that can acquire a completely different shade over time.
The reason is simple – the presence of melanin, which also determines the color of the skin and hair of the baby. The more this pigment in the body of your child, the darker will be his hair, and the tint of the iris in the color of the eyes is close to the karem. The production of melanin is completely dependent on the light factor, and since there is practically no light inside the mother’s womb, the newborn child usually has blue and light gray eyes.
Only genetics is responsible for the amount of dark pigment present in the intrauterine life of infants. If the parents – owners of swarthy skin and black hair, the probability of the appearance of a brown-eyed child, significantly increases. In the body of black people, the melanin content is at a high level, whereas in albinos it is completely absent. By the way, albino eyes are usually light-blue and they will be like this for life and any age.
