my 3 weeks old baby has dark brown eyes, dp says they can still turn blue, i heard brown eyes never go blue, what do you think?

I don't think that can happen. Blue can change, but not brown, so far as I know!

No, I think you are right. Blue eyes can go brown, as they get more pigment with exposure to light, but not the other way round.

baby's eyes are blue when they're born so that the pupil is clearer to the parents (wide pupils is attractive and helps with bonding or somesuch) Not all babies are born with blue eyes but a huge majority are. As far as I know a baby born with brown eyes will not change to blue. I've never seen it happen anyway.
