Default Alternative to "Popeye Mouth"?

I have spent over a month trying to work on the "Popeye Mouth" when swimming freestyle so I do not have to rotate my head as much (after finally learning to balance correctly). Because of my Cerebral Palsy, my mouth in general works differently than most people. I was not successful in doing the Popeye Mouth in the water, so I tried doing facial muscle exercises on dry land to see if I could condition my mouth to make the Popeye Mouth. After taking in my share of/drinking little bits of water I have given up on the attempt to even think it is possible. Does anyone have suggestions as to an alternative so I am not drinking water when trying to breathe?
