No it's not advisable to start solids before 6 months, I know you say you're back to work but regardless foods before one are just for fun and are not meant to take the place of any feeding bottle or breast.

Solids shouldn't be started till around 6 months because babies tummies aren't ready to be able to digest most foods. It's also not a good thing to start with fruits as once you introduce sweet things it's very hard for them to eat any savoury things.
