1) It is permissible for a woman to perform salat with a hair bun as long as her hair is completely covered during salat.

2) In principle, according to the Hanafi Madhab, aml-e-katheer (excessive actions) invalidates the salat. Aml-e-katheer takes place when both hands are being used for an action not inclusive in salat at once, for example, if one adjusts his topi using both hands at the same time, or if one hand is used three or more times in a rukn (posture) of salat. Therefore, if one holds a child in salat, aml-e-katheer is likely to occur (for example, if one puts the child down or picks him up while in salat with both hands), and that would invalidate the salat.

It is best to leave the child at home with the mother. This way you will not have to worry about him while praying salat in the masjid. Not only would it be a distraction to you, but to other worshippers as well. If it is not possible to leave the child with the mother, then it will be permissible to pray salat while carrying him out of necessity. However, if aml-e-katheer occurs at any time in salat, then the prayer will be invalid.  


فأما حمل الصبي بدون الإرضاع فلا يوجب فساد الصلاة

 لما روي : [ أن النبي صلى الله عليه و سلم كان يصلي في بيته وقد حمل أمامة بنت أبي العاص على عاتقه فكان إذا سجد وضعها وإذا قام رفعها ] ثم هذا الصنيع لم يكره منه صلى الله عليه و سلم لأنه كان محتاجا إلى ذلك لعدم من يحفظها أو لبيانه الشرع بالفعل أن هذا غير موجب فساد الصلاة ومثل هذا في زماننا أيضا لا يكره لواحد منا لو فعل ذلك عند الحاجة أما بدون الحاجة فمكروه

(Badaai’ Al-Sanai’, Vol. 1, P. 553, Darul kutub Deoband)


إذا حك ثلاثاً في ركن واحد ، تفسد صلاته ، هذا إذا رفع يده في كل مرة ، أما إذا لم يرفع في كل مرة ، فلا تفسد . و لو كان الحك مرةً واحدةً ، يكره ، كذا في الخلاصة.
