Mix milk and water
Ok, to mix breast milk with water?
Breast milk is about 80-90% water, so there really isn't any need to add extra water. Water consumption is also not recommended for the reason you used it: newborns can fill up with water, so they should not be given water. (It's like filling up biscuits instead of an actual meal. Your growing bodies need good nutrition.)
Your wife is right that water poisoning can occur in infants.
Too much water dilutes sodium in the blood and flushes it out of the body, changing brain activity, which can lead to a seizure. Infants under 1 year of age may be more prone to these types of seizures than older children because a toddler's diet does not contain enough food sources to replenish lost sodium. Also, a child's immature kidneys cannot flush out excess water quickly enough, leading to dangerous water buildup in the body.
Definitely avoid adding water to breast milk. Typically, infants are not given water until they start solids / baby food - and then they are given meals as well. Once they are weaned, water intake is increased to make up for this.
I would recommend having a replacement formula or even a pacifier on hand to help ease the suction. Also try to distract the child until the mother comes back, to rock him, etc. Do not use cow's milk as it is not adequately nourished either. Stick to breast milk or baby formula.
