With a young/growing snake the shedding cycle can vary... having shed two weeks ago and looking as if she's starting again isn't unusual.

Lots of factors will effect the shedding cycle/frequency of snakes... especially with young growing snakes. During spring time... April/May... some of my adult milks have even shed at 3 week intervals.

Sounds as if you're doing things right... expect a shed within each calendar month for a young snake being brought up under optimum conditions.
