What we experienced was a little different, so I'm not sure if this is much help. My DD just stopped drinking the milk I was pumping. She didn't replace it with anything either....
We tried cow's milk. No go. We tried soy. Nope. Rice milk? Almond milk? Nah.
In the end, we decided to simply keep her hydrated during the day. She had plenty of snacks offered to her throughout the day when I was gone, and the sippy with water was always around. She did learn to drink the water from the sippy eventually. When she would turn up with dry diapers, particularly when it was hot out, we found that she loves warm, dilute peppermint tea. Other people I know have mentioned flavoring the water with a lemon wedge.
Can you reduce to one pump per day? Can you pump when at home instead? If you're pumping 10-11 oz per day, it will likely take you a few weeks to "wean" yourself from the pump anyways -- just a heads up.
Pumping sucks (pun intended). It's really too bad our babies don't make it easier! I hope you get things figured out.
