If the plant is in the ground now, just allow the babies to develop their own root systems by pegging the runners down so the bottoms of each of the babies makes good contact with the soil. Once they have each developed their own root systems you can cut the runner between the baby and the parent plant. It isn't necessary to pot them up on their own - you can leave them where they are - but you can pot them up if you'd like.
