Nail Pops Galore!

I am in the process of painting walls in our wonderful new addition (started in Oct.), and I noticed nail pops ALL OVER the walls! How do I take care of them? Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help. Walter

Re: Nail Pops Galore!

Set the nails with another nail catching the edge of the first nail's head. That keeps it in. Or, set the nail very deep, and place drywall screws to both sides of it. Then, re-mud every nail/ screw head.
Guess you had some really wet framing lumber.
