Brief Answer: More information is needed. Detailed Answer: Hi and thank you so much for trusting us with your health query. I am so sorry to hear about this disturbing thought. It is extremely difficult to tell by the look of a baby alone whether that baby is yours or not. If you for real have major doubts whether he is your child or not, I will advice that you go in for a paternity test. This will look at your DNA and compare it with that of the child. This is the gold standard and will leave no doubt as to whether he is your child or not. The results would offer a very clear and conclusive answer to this. I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and please feel free to ask for clarifications if need be. Dr. Ditah, MD.

Brief Answer: More information needed. Detailed Answer: Thanks for following up with me. You said this child looked white the very next day. This means the brown color was most likely linked transient environmental conditions and not intrinsic. I suppose you should believe more in what you have now than a transient observation you observed once. I hope it helps. Please, do not poison your mind and relationship with ideas that are probably transient and environmentally related. Thanks. Dr. Ditah, MD.
