My 6 month old carpet python first shed was on 1/1 2022 and her second shed was 16/3 2022 roughly 11 weeks I have got told they shed every 6-8 weeks is it bad that she had a late shed?

6-8 weeks is an extremely rough figure. When growing up Pythons of that age I usually have them sloughing about every 4-6 weeks, sometimes every 3 weeks or so. 11 weeks is on the long side for a Carpet that age but it's not a particular concern if you're happy to grow it slowly. If you feed more it'll slough more frequently.
