Well I havent heard of that before. Adults cannot drown unless they are fully underwater and cannot get oxygen. Im not sure about babies, but they should not have water until a bit older. Milk is their primary food source, not water.

Babies drink milk..So, no.

But I think I know what you are talking about.

An adult can drink themselves to death. That is drink so much water they die. It has happened in a case with an athlete. You can drink so much water that it thins your blood out and basically makes your blood water...You will have more water than blood in your veins.

you can drink enough water to get a low blood sodium (usually only if you have a psychiatric problem) but you wouldn't "have more water than blood in your veins"
