We used SafeCoat: http://www.afmsafecoat.com/index.php
They say on their website:
"How does Safecoat differ from other so-called environmental paints on the market?

We used the Sherwin Williams Harmony zero VOC. We were quite happy with it, as far as it compared to typical paint.

I've used the Benjamin Moore Natura paint recently too. It was my only non-VOC option short of ordering online and paying crazy shipping. Like the PP said, it really doesn't have that "paint" smell. Hardly any odor at all. For other options, AFM http://www.afmsafecoat.com/ and Bioshield http://www.bioshieldpaint.com/ are excellent companies. My mom has used their paints and finishes a lot. One of them would have been my first choice, but I can't get them locally (as in w/in 1500 miles...).

When I painted our kitchen a few months ago I used a zero VOC paint made by Benjamin Moore called Natura. To be honest, I didn't do any research about it being specifically "kid safe" since I just wanted something that I could buy (semi) locally that was low VOC. It was pretty easy to use and didn't really have the smell I associate with paint. I have a small area that I still need to paint and I'll be comfortable using this with the windows shut. Here's the website for it: http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-your-home/natura-zero-voc-interior-paint
The only thing I can think of offhand that you might want to be careful about in a child's room is disturbing OLD lead paint. If you're scraping off old paint and/or removing wallpaper and your home is an older one chances are that you could create lead dust from older paint jobs.

I'm just starting research on this...but is low VOC all I need to look for? Anything else I need to be on the look out for? Brand recommendations??
