Personally I think when the belt starts to feel dry. When they are new the leather should feel well nourished and look a little waxy, at that stage I think they are best left alone. As time goes by, depending on the conditions the belt experiences, the specific bit of leather and how much wear it gets you'll find the leather starts to feel dryer to the touch and thats the point I'd apply the leather feed. If you feel the leather needs to be softer or more flexible at any point though then the feed will help at any point.
I hope that helps at least a little!
