1 doctor agrees
In brief: Yes
It's not uncommon for some jaundice (bilirubin levels of 5 to 10 range) to continue for 4 to 6 weeks (very rarely up to 12 weeks), in a breast fed infant.
In such a situation, i still recommend getting a total and direct bilirubin (a blood test for jaundice) to make sure, no other condition with high direct bilirubin exist. If so, the infant's stools can be clay colored (not brown or yellow).

In brief: No
Most often yellow eyes (that is, the whites of the eyes are yellow) are associated with jaundice, which normally should have resolved by one month of age.
If present, the child should be examined by a physician and perhaps some blood work may be indicated.
