While my child is with me do I have to keep in contact (or reply to any messages) with the mother of my child? - obviously i would inform her if he ill or things like that.
I have contact order and my child stays overnight twice a week.
Thank you for your question.

While the child is with you then provided there is no problem you do not have to keep in contact with your ex at all.
Obviously if there is a specific cause for concern - maybe when you collected him he was crying and she want's to know if all is well - then a reply would be polite.
equally if you ever have him for longer it would be reasonable to let her know all is well.
Otherwise no
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
