Personally, I would concentrate on establishment with a more general fertiliser. Even growmore would be suitable. Then go for an autumn tyope weed & feed around late August/ September. But everyone has their preferences.
Using a high nitrogen may well knock out the ballance between foliage and root systems with such a young lawn. Most of it's life so far has been spent doing nothing through winter.
