I've always advised people not to use a cave-style hide as it blocks all heat / UV; some babies will spend a lot of time in the hide. It's always a good idea to put something in that a beardie can hide behind, whilst still getting heat / UV.

In cages with UV tubes, I generally use tall rocks to form a kind of screen at either end that a beardie can go behind to get out of sight of us, whilst still getting heat (if in the hot end), and UV regardless of which end it's at.
