41. I had more time now..
According to the CDC quoted above in the OP..

Children under one year most often drown in bathtubs, buckets, or toilets

Also according to the CDC site, specifically the WISQARS calculator also linked in the OP, in 2007 there were 225 drownings of children ages 0-1 years of age. If most drowned in bathtubs, toilets and buckets, the 9 figure is simply not even close to right.
