Yellowing Eyes

So my DD is 9 weeks old now. My sister mentioned the other day after my 8 weeks appointment if the doctor had said anything about DD's eyes? I said you mean that the whites can be a little yellow? She said yes and I said no she didn't but I have noticed that from time to time.

Then she said something about the fact that it happens with some breastfed babies and not to worry because she isn't yellow anywhere else. When I stop bf it will be white and normal again.

Has anyone heard of this?

It happens with BF babies and it will actually go away soon. They will start staying white real soon.

My dd was jaundiced after she was born and her eyes are still a touch yellow and she's 5 months old. The same thing happened with my other 2 kids. They have perfectly white eyes now, though, lol! As long as they aren't getting more yellow I wouldn't worry.
