 i might get it spirialed at around 5 yr. old for a special occassion, but I'm not really with the heat on babies hair.  And definitely NO RELAXER until she's old enough to maintain it herself (or pay for it to be done properly).

I am against relaxing childrens hair however this non permanent process isnt bad to me. Its no different than if I put some curls in my daughters hair with a curling iron.

I barely want to do my own hair, so I wouldn't be flat ironing a 3 year old's, either. She is soooooooooooooooooo cute!

LOL, I have mutual friends with the child's father and her Mom who wrote in
 
 I think Its fine, the baby's hair can with hold the heat and she asked her mommy to straighten it so she did. This was the first time, I doubt she will allow it on the regular

No thank you, 3 seems too young to me. Isn't that preschool age? Would it even last?

Well I personally wouldn't for the reasons Simone mentioned. I wouldn't want my daughter thinking the only way she would be accepted, or get work, or feel pretty is to have straight swinging hair.
 
And I'd be living example by using my natural hair to show her that.
 
There's nothing wrong with versatility. A flat iron once in a while is great.  It's just one of many styles and not the end all, be all. Braids and twists, and rollersets, and banding, and I could go on and on with beautiful options for little black girls. I mean Esperanza Spalding rocked a fro out of this world and she looked damn good.
 
That's what I'd like my daughter to aspire to in terms of beauty. Celebrate and appreciate all aspects of it.

I see nothing wrong with it. Its cute. It wouldn't be something I would daily, weekly, or even monthly though. Its better than a relaxer. Some kids get relaxers at 3 or younger.
