Do I need to do it gradually... Like mix the soy and alimentum together? Or is it not necessary?

It's suggested. It's hard on baby's tummy to switch formula back and forth. Was it doc's suggestion to use Alimentum?

No I've just heard it works really well with colicky reflux issuers and I'm willing to try anything now!

the just switch was meaning switch the formula dont mix them.

Note that if your doc gives you a script, insurance companies will pay for special formula.
