I have been BFing since my DD was born 51/2 months ago. I have just barely started supplementing with formula but I am having a hard time deciding on what kind of formula to feed her. I have been debating between organic milk based, soy or just milk based. She has had a couple servings of regular milk based but I worry that it contains hormones that the cows have been treated with. What is the best formula you have used and I don't care what it costs.....thanksAnswer Question

I'd stick with a milk based if she has no allergies. I think the soy should be reserved for those with milk allergies since we still don't know about the effects of massive amounts of the phyto-estrogens in soy products (I have boys, so it's more of an issue for me, but still...I dunno).
If cost is no object, there are some really nice organic products out there. There are organic, dairy-based formulas from Earth's Best, Baby's Only, Bright Beginnings, Similac, and I'm sure there are a few other smaller companies out there.
I think that since all will be subject to FDA regulations regarding the nutritive content in formulas, the main difference to think about is how easy it'll be for you to get it. Do you do your grocery shopping at a natural grocery store anyway? Then no problem. Or you could always order by the case online, which is a very cost-efficient way to go.
