At that age perhaps once a month if they're growing at a normal rate; as long as they're putting on weight it's not something to get too concerned about.

They carry on shedding until they're adults, and will shed periodically once they're fully grown.

Beardies shed throughout their entire lives, though as they stop growing they shed less often as the skin doesnt need to keep accomodating growth.

They tend to shed in bits and when mine was young it seemed like there was always some part of him shedding at some point.

I wouldnt worry about it yet, they'll shed as and when they need to as they grow out of their old skin.

Just leave it to it
