store in a cool dry dark place.
you did not say the location of the "babies" on the plant but yes probably are babies
It is usually best to let the bulbules (babies0 grow attached to the plant for 2+ years. before seperation.

What kind of lilies and where are these 'bulbs' located? Some folks mistake the seed pods as bulbs.
