Is it okay to drink Ensure during pregnancy?

My sister is almost 34 weeks and the baby is measuring only 28 weeks. I suggested that she should drink the Ensure shakes. Is it safe? She is going to call her doctor on Monday to see if it was okay, but I just wanted to get your thoughts.

  • It's fine. Wal-Mart sells a generic brand.

  • I drank Ensures when I was pregnant. I wasn't gaining enough weight during my pregnancy and that helped me gain a little extra.

  • Yes, I drink them fairly often. I get really hungry around bed time, but if I get I feel sick in the morning. So drinking them fixes that.
