Behind the scenes
Staff writer Bryan Cogman came up with the idea of the stillborn fetuses being preserved in jars. Cogman said in an interview, "It was a proud day for me as a writer when I walked on set and saw those magnificently nasty prop dead babies floating in those jars."
In the books
In the A Song of Ice and Fire book series, there is no mention Selyse Baratheon having any stillborn sons.
In the books, King Robert's one acknowledged bastard son is named Edric Storm. He hasn't been introduced in the TV series yet, and indeed, his storyline in the third novel was merged with Robert's other bastard Gendry in the TV series.
To be clear: Selyse's stillborn son "Edric Baratheon" is not the TV series' version of "Edric Storm". Selyse isn't stated to have any stillborn sons in the novels, thus the writers had to make up names for all three - apparently, they tried to remain internally consistent by choosing other common names used for characters from the Stormlands in the books. Similarly, the other stillborn son "Petyr Baratheon" isn't somehow influenced by Petyr Baelish, other than that the writers wanted to use established names instead of making up their own which might not fit the storyverse.
