I have never personally seen aggression of adults toward hatchlings, HOWEVER, even the most passive adult may occasionaly bite down on a foot or toe and cause permanent damage to a hatchling when feeding. It is unintentional, I even see the adults waiting their turn if the hatchlings are all over the plate so as not to bite down on another lizard, but an accident can leave a baby maimed for life. So, my advice is to keep them separate. Also, the babies should have very finely chopped food compared to the adults and a baby who is dragging a flower around shaking it from side to side to break it down often gets attention of an adult who then wants to share and drags the baby all over the enclosure. So..no, don't keep them together.
