Why is she on soy? I wouldn't change if she is doing good on the soy. Absolutely no milk until 12 months.

Did she have a reaction at all to the other formulas or she just didn't like them? People start transitioning kids to milk after a year old. If she just didn't like the other formulas I would just transition her to milk as normal, if she has had a reaction, I'd talk to your pediatrician.

 yea, she threw everything else up, thats why we stayed at the hospital, we didnt want to bring her home until she was ok with formula.

Don't change her formula or put her on regular milk without talking to her pediatrician.

 If she's doing fine on the formula she's on now, I wouldn't change it. You can start giving her regular whole milk once she's a year old.

No milk until she is a year or until your doctor says it is okay.
