Safe Baby Cribs turn into the Safe Big Kid Beds
Young America furniture provides parents with confidence to choose our baby cribs and children’s beds. We know making the change from a crib to a “big boy” or “big girl” toddler bed is a very big day for a child. We understand how it’s a big deal for parents too. Children’s safety is a real concern. Young America, the American manufacturer of premium quality, safety certified children’s furniture, is the best source for safe baby cribs and toddler beds. We’re here to help parents breathe easily by providing the safest cribs, toddler beds and beds on the market; cribs that are Built to Grow™ and may be converted into the safest toddler beds - when the big day arrives.
Built To Grow™ (BTG) grow means safe, real furniture that grows with your child - from a baby crib to a Toddler Bed, then into a regular Twin Bed or Full Bed. Young America BTG products are designed, engineered and built for exceptional quality and safety. It’s the safest sleeping solution - and best value - for a growing family.
Here’s a glimpse of how BTG works:
Safety First - a checklist for parents
Young America furniture knows that when it comes to babies and kids, you can’t be too safe. Here are the safety guidelines we follow - and that you may want to keep in mind when you’re shopping for cribs, beds and other bedroom furniture for your child.
All Young America furniture features our exclusive SafeT3™ design — three levels of safeguards for product and environmental safety that have been certified by an independent expert. This means safety for your child.
1. Safety engineered
Young America furniture developed its own system of safety features that surpass even the most stringent mandatory or voluntary product safety guidelines.
2. Safety built
Safety begins at home. Young America furniture is made in our Robbinsville, North Carolina factory, which gives us an unparalleled level of quality control when it comes to building in safety.
3. Safety certified
Our superior level of safety standards meet or exceed those set by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and JPMA and ASTM.
Additional Safety Certification
In addition to our exclusive SafeT3™ design we’ve gone beyond to work voluntarily with two third party organizations: Intertek and the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute to ensure the safety of our furniture - specifically of our baby cribs. We believe a safe choice is a smart choice. Read more

Children are more susceptible to pollutants than adults because they are growing and breathe in proportionately more air. This means indoor pollutants, such as certain chemicals, particles and allergens, can cause more severe health effects in children.
Facts You Should Know
- Children breathe in a greater volume of air than adults relative to their body size.
- Children’s organs and respiratory, immune and neurological systems are still developing.
- Children are much closer to the ground, and as a result, breathe in more of the heavier airborne chemicals than do adults.
- Infants and young children breathe through their mouths, more so than do adults, which increases their risk of pulmonary exposure to particulates and fibers, that would otherwise be filtered out in the nose.
- Children have a higher heart rate than adults, which allows substances that are absorbed into the blood to permeate tissues faster.
A Young America furniture GREENGUARD certified baby crib is part of a healthy nursery for your child.
