    regular chair?

    Do you want to sit on your high chair or on a regular chair beside Mommy and Daddy?

    Do you have to say "regular"?

    Would "normal" work?

    Or should have it been simply phrased as "Do you want to sit on your high chair or beside Mommy and Daddy?"

    Re: regular chair?

    All your alternatives are fine.

    You could also say "a grown-up's chair" or "a big boy's/girl's chair".

    'Regular' meaning normal or ordinary is not BrE.

    So no, you don't have to say it.
