Weighting cuddle bodies??

How do you weight cuddle bodies?
I want to add a little bit of weight, So thinking I need to enclose polypellets in something for the limbs, and whether to put them in the middle of the limbs surrounded by fibrefill, or to put the weight in the feet and hands, or only in the body.
What do you suggest?
Hugs Annette

I put the weight in nylons and leave them long. Then I wrap them to the armature using strips of quilt batting maybe 2 inches wide. If no armature then I do small bags and alternate them with fiberfil and put it around the weight pouches so that they stay distributed how I want them to
