Child sleeping with the parents on the bed

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

A: He should be under a different sheet or blanket altogether. At least keep a few pillows or cushions between themselves. If it is girl them let her be totally on the mother’s side.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
