In brief: When baby wants

On demand feeding refers to feeding the baby when baby wants as opposed to feeding on a set schedule.
In the newborn period, on-demand feeding is usually the best way to feed (with, perhaps, a few caveats to make sure the baby isn't snacking and is getting other needs met - diaper changes, burping, sleep, etc.).
