INTRODUCTION: The first years of life are important to child cognitive, social and emotional development. In this context parent-child interaction is a determinant of early psychosocial and cognitive stimulation, which in turn is associated with better cognitive performance, salary, schooling and mental health in adulthood. Evaluating and measuring accurately early stimulation in the first years of life is challenging due to retrospective and memory bias. Thus, Experience Sampling (ES) is a real-time assessment method with ecological validity adequate for early childhood studies. OBJECTIVES: Determine the efficacy of a nurse home visitation program for pregnant youth on early cognitive and psychosocial maternal stimulation and assess an experience sampling protocol to measure early cognitive and psychosocial. METHODS: Eighty young pregnant women aged between 14 and 20 years living in São Paulo enrolled in an ongoing clinical trial. Participants were randomly allocated to (1) nurse home visiting program or to (2) control group (usual prenatal care program). Mothers will answer questions about child cognitive and psychosocial stimulation daily via a smartphone application during a period of 7 days. After this period of time, mothers will be interviewed face-to-face with a structured questionnaire with the same questions in the ES protocol in order to validate the method. (AU)
