Formula milk - feed on demand or every 3 hours?

Hi everyone, just feeling abit confused. For formula milk, should I feed on demand or every 3 hours? My LO is about 6 weeks now, sometimes her feeding time can be stretched to 4-5 hours at night. Should I wake her up every 3 hours, or feed only when she wakes up and show hunger cues?

I will usually Feed on demand. Let LO sleep, formula milk makes baby full, usually about 2-3hours. But at night, they tend to sleep longer so about 4-5hours.

For fm I was told that it is every 3 hours, unless bb cries for more. Should be okay if baby do not have jaundice
