Your answer to why Pūtanā died is because of Bhagwan Shri Kṛṣṇa’s greatness. He being God, sucked the life out of her while she was nursing him. Let’s look at how the Purāṇas describe Bhagwan sucking her life out of her:
Kṛṣṇa, laying hold of the breast with both hands, sucked it with such violence, that he drained it of the life; and the hideous Pūtanā, roaring aloud, and giving way in every joint, fell on the ground expiring
-Viṣṇu Purāṇa 5.5
Taking Śri Kṛṣṇa into her lap there, that cruel woman put into the baby’s mouth, her dreadful breast besmeared with deadly poison. Squeezing it hard with both his hands, the Lord full of indignation forthwith sucked the poison along with her (very) life
-Śrimad Bhagavatam, 10th Skandha, Chapter 6.9-10
And a similar account of sucking her life finds mention in the Harivamsa Purana, Vishnu Parva, Chapter 6, verse 26
Also as per the Srimad Bhagavatam 10.6.33-44, Putana’s sins are wiped off (and because of nursing him like a mother) she attains the Lord’s supreme abode just the way Yashoda and Devaki would.
